The New Year …

Since I started this blog nearly a year ago, I completed a mini-survey of ASX-listed companies in the industry sectors Pharmaceuticals, Biotechnology & Life Sciences, Health Care Equipment & Services, and Household & Personal Products. Changing research practices in these sectors depends of course on the availability of suitable alternatives to animal experimentation. In 2015 I intend to monitor publicly available sources for information on the development and validation of animal free research methods. To start, I’ve added a page with links to databases of non-animal research methods for basic research and toxicity testing.

Also, I want to look at other industry sectors – though in a less formal way – where animals are used for food, clothing or entertainment.
