Animals in Research Committee

Description

The Animals in Research Committee monitors the status of the use of animals in biomedical research and the impact upon ARVO members; provides a resource for eye and vision researchers whose work comes under scrutiny; assists the ARVO Board of Trustees with issues requiring policy decisions; and educates the membership on relevant issues to increase members' awareness of the importance of animal research in understanding eye disease and visual functions.
