From CBC news:
In an effort to increase transparency, the University of British Columbia released data showing the school used over 200,000 animals in research testing last year.
We certainly hope this is a trend that continues.
OHSU has long believed that the health care institutions should be transparent about their necessary use of animals to understand and combat disease.
That’s why we do tours at our primate center and bring the press in regularly.
The reality is that any university conducting health research is studying humans and animals alike.
Lets hope more institutes follow the University of British Columbia’s lead.
