This course will explore the changing face of science and the emergence of non-animal methods (often called new approach methods or alternative methods) for research, testing and education, as well as the shifting regulatory landscape that requires that non-animal methods be developed and implemented. For scientific, economic and ethical reasons, cell-based, computational, and other non-animal study methods are being increasingly developed and implemented by the biomedical research community. Federal and international regulations and guidelines state that researchers proposing animal-based methods in research must demonstrate that they have considered the methods that can avoid or minimize animal use.

This course is intended for undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in science programs. There are no prerequisites.
