Searching for the truth about the need for animals in biomedical research and how they are handled can be difficult.
In addition to our animal research links page, we collected some videos and shared them below to help in the quest to learn why, how, and when animals are needed for medical research.

Since ancient times, Italians have been celebrated worldwide as great artists, poets, scientists and inventors. Lets just think of Leonardo Da Vinci, Galileo Galilei, Marconi and Meucci, and, more recently, of the Nobel Laureates Montalcini or Capecchi.

Dr. Caminiti, Professor of Human Physiology, expert in neuroanatomy and neurophysiology, will explain us why primates are used in research.
