Animal Research: Perceptions vs Reality

The Foundation of Biomedical Research (FBR) is proud to announce its newest resource titled “Animal Research: Perceptions vs Reality.”

In today’s news, animal rights groups intentionally mislead the public by sharing ill-informed “facts” or half-truths about animal research. That is why we developed this factual, science-based, and informative brochure that tackles the myths surrounding animal research. It educates readers to the true and proven facts about the benefits and successful results animal research has provided. 

Each false perception in the brochure is addressed by a highly-respected neuro-oncologist, teacher, and FBR Board Vice-Chair Dr. Henry S. Friedman.
