Aysha Akhtar, President and CEO of the Center for Contemporary Sciences, will participate in a webinar on “COVID-19 Research: With or Without Animals?” on October 16th. This webinar is part of a six-part series titled Animals, Climate Change and Global Health.
She and three other webinar speakers will focus on these questions (and more!):
Which non-human animals are currently used to find treatments for SARS-CoV-2? Why are such procedures done even though it is increasingly evident that results from animal experiments are not predictive of human responses? What innovative non-animal methods are available and now used to tackle the COVID crisis? And why are we still relying on animals for safety testing?
