Honest talk about animal research education

December 22, 2011

The Institute of Learning and Teaching is hosting a discussion of ethical and moral issues surrounding animal research. The presentation will also throw light on the role that regulations play in the arena of translational research. This interactive discussion is open to the entire University community.

Monday, January 9
1-2:50 p.m.
Lory Student Center, Room 211E

The University community is invited to attend a presentation about the ethical aspects of animal research.  The presenters are University faculty and researchers.

Ethical and moral issues

This session will be an interactive discussion about animal welfare and animal research. We will explore ethical and moral issues, discuss animal rights vs. animal exploitation, and use case studies to illustrate the role that regulations play in animal research.

Gaps in knowledge

Animal research is a controversial topic that merits discussion. Often those who aren't involved with animal research have inadequate or inaccurate information on the subject. This session will provide factual information and a forum for discussion for all members of the CSU community.

Our presenters are Denise Ostmeyer, James Owiny, Lon Kendall, Bill Moseley, and Kelly Walton.
