Join the committee

Do you want to get involved in the central Speaking of Research committee?We need your help to expand the Speaking of Research movement.

Do you need advice on how to make your voice heard on campus, in a climate where animal rights activists dominate the media and stifle open debate? The Speaking of Research committee help support activities across the world. We have supported individuals, as well as in starting movements such as Pro-Test for Science and Pro-Test Italia.

We need people to help write articles for the website – both to expand the information about animal research, and to update the public on the latest developments in science that have been made through animal research. Any scientists willing to write 400-1500 word blog posts, mentioning recent medical advances made possible through animal research, would be warmly welcomed. We ask SR committee members to try to write at least one article every four months. However we do also accept guest posts.

With your help we can help effect a national change in the public perception of animal research – It’s been done before in the UK (see the UK experience).
