Hidden Costs and Hidden Potential

See our other poster campaigns here.

Animals are the most seriously victimized by invasive experimentation and dissection in research and education. But they’re not the only ones affected. Our new poster campaign highlights the stories of former biomedical researchers, lab technicians, biology students and others who refuse to accept the premise that doing good science necessarily entails harming animals.

What knowledge and how many discoveries have been lost due to the exclusion of ethical students and researchers, and the different perspectives they would bring to science? How many resources and how much time have been wasted in the vain pursuit of cures for diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s in humans using ‘animal models’? Alternative approaches to scientific inquiry have the potential to generate medical breakthroughs, and to attract scientists with a more ethical and holistic conception of the place of humans in the natural world, thereby expanding the horizons and achievements of scientific inquiry.

Starting on January 2015 throughout Queen’s University campus!
