Animal Research – Your Voices Heard!

I was recently contacted by a PhD student who was studying at the University of British Columbia (Canada). She is running a survey on people’s views and reactions to animal research. So help a poor student out and show where out views on animal research are!

Dear Reader

Our group at UBC has created an online, interactive survey to better understand attitudes towards the use of animals in research. We would like to include the perspectives of Speaking of Research readers because they represent important perspectives on the use of animals in research.

The survey consists of 2-5 questions and will take approximately 5-10 minutes of your time.

In order to take the survey you will need to register. This requires entering your email address. Please don’t be put off, this is simply so that we can make the survey safe from spammers and hackers. We will not be able to link your e-mail address with your answers, and we will not give your details to any third party.

If you have any questions about the research, please feel free to e mail me at

You can access the ‘Animals in Research: Responsible Conduct’ survey via this link:

Our homepage also has links to other really interesting surveys regarding ethical issues so once you’ve completed our survey, feel free to take others!

Thank you. We value your input.
