The Law of Humane Science 921-S2
October 22, 2013
This course will examine the utilization of animals in toxicity testing for drug discovery and safety and chemical hazard evaluation. As well as discuss the development of animal models in disease research that have lead to the passage of several federal laws and federal and state litigation surrounding humane treatment, animal use, and cruelty.
Students will explore the laws, regulations, and policies that govern the relationship between biomedical institutions, laboratory researchers, and animals, which have developed rapidly over the past half-century. They will focus on the system of self-regulation that is at the heart of the US (and international) efforts to address the ethical and societal beneficial laboratory animal use.
