PETA International Science Consortium Ltd. Helps Fund Creation of 3-D Lung Model to Spare Animals

Funding from the PETA International Science Consortium Ltd. contributed towards the creation of a first-of-its-kind three-dimensional model that can be used to study the effects of chemicals on the deepest part of the human lung. This model could prevent tens of thousands of rats and mice from being confined to small tubes and forced to inhale toxic chemicals for hours, even repeatedly over several months, before being killed. A paper describing the model was coauthored by the Science Consortium and published in the esteemed scientific journal ACS Nano.
