The Society of Spanish Researchers in the United Kingdom (SRUK/CERU) joined in November 2018 the Agreement on Openness on Animal Research, promoted by the Federation of Scientific Societies in Spain (COSCE), with the collaboration of the European Association of Research Animals (EARA), and launched on 20 September 2016. More than 150 organisations have already signed this Agreement! Here you can read the latest news on the Agreement and reports on the use of animals in research and training in Spain and the EU.
SRUK/CERU considers that animal experimentation plays a fundamental role in understanding the underlying biological mechanisms of disease and in the development of medical treatments. Without using animals in research, we would not have most of the medicines, antibiotics, vaccines and surgical techniques applied nowadays in human and veterinary medicine.
