The British Pharmacological Society and Understanding Animal Research have produced an animation explaining why animals are used in pharmacology. This under-three minute video is a great way of getting across the importance of animal research to those who are less aware of the science behind biomedicine.
It’s not the first animated video that we have mentioned. Check out a previous post for a great video on why researchers use genetically modified animals. Hopefully we will see more videos explaining everything from the use of animals in basic research to the animal testing used to ensure safety.
