Alternatives: Why does it take so long?

The RSPCA is opposed to the use of animals in studies that have to potential to cause pain, suffering, distress or lasting harm and want to see the use of animals in research replaced with humane alternatives.
The toolbox of humane alternatives to the use of animals in research is growing and exciting progress is being made in this arena on a daily basis. This presentation will look at why animals continue to be used despite this ever expanding tool box and suggest some ideas as to how this could change moving forward.
