Scientists from the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics launch new organisation to end animal testing
Two science Fellows of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics (OCAE) are launching a new scientific organisation to end animal testing.
Center for Contemporary Sciences (CCS) is an independent nonprofit organisation that is advancing human-specific research methods and testing to improve lives. The organisation will serve as a hub of the latest information, resources and innovation in the biomedical field.
One of the ways they hope to enrich the scientific field is through collaboration. CCS partners with scientists, corporations, government agencies and academia to further scientific discovery. The organisation is pioneering the transition to innovative human-specific medical research and testing methods including 3D human-tissue culture, human stem-cells, organ-and body-on-a-chip methods, human spheroids and organoids, bioprinting, and more.
“It is so good that scientists are coming together to pioneer ethical science. We need to show that there can be scientific progress without harming sentient animals,” said the Revd Professor Andrew Linzey, Director of the OCAE.
