April 3, 2019

The International Union of Physiological Sciences (IUPS) has the responsibility to advocate and champion key issues which are of global impact and contribution. Animal ethics is one of those issues worthy of furtherance.

The Ethics Committee of IUPS plays an active role in creating an awareness of ethical use of animals in training and research in physiological sciences'.

Additionally it would like to address problems that biomedical researchers face at the hands of groups who do not advocate the use of animals in spite of their institutes, laboratories and animal facilities being governed by strictly enforced guidelines

The Ethics Committee is seeking committee members to serve through the IUPS-2021 Congress. Terms of Reference are available upon request. Please contact Ashima Anand (ashima_anand@hotmail.com) for more details or to apply.
