Scientists Talk Non-Animal Testing Methods in Singapore

Published by Heather Moore.

Remember when PETA shared the exciting news that a team of scientists in Singapore had developed a software program to determine whether individual drugs are toxic to human kidneys—technology that’s not just humane, but faster, cheaper, and more accurate than tests on animals?

Now that research team and other forward-thinking scientists are sponsoring a session on non-animal test methods at an international conference. The session will showcase models such as artificial kidneys that function like human ones and can be used to study the toxic effects of chemicals without using animals. Progressive research methods like these help reduce animal testing, and that’s great news!

This is something that PETA is happy to support. We routinely help fund and promote non-animal research methods, such as by attending and presenting at scientific conferences like this one in Singapore.

PETA wishes the session presenters well and anticipates progress in animal-free toxicity testing as a result of this session.
