Advancing Science Without Animals
Dr Elisabeth Ormandy will share her personal story of how she went from neuroscientist to animal welfare and ethics expert over the course of a decade, and why she is committed to advancing science without the use of animals. This talk will cover both scientific and ethical reasons why replacing animals in research, testing, and teaching is an important endeavour.
Elisabeth is co-founder and Executive Director for the Animals in Science Policy Institute – a registered non-profit based in Vancouver, BC, whose mission is to build an ethical culture of science that respects animal life by promoting the reduction and replacement of animals in research, testing, and teaching. She lives in Vancouver, BC, and teaches at the University of British Columbia.
