Imagine a world where lab rats are replaced by lab robots, with human cell cultures and high-tech computer models instead of lethal tests on animals. That’s not science fiction, that’s science future—21st century safety testing and health research as envisioned by leading scientists.
Today, scientific and government authorities worldwide are acknowledging the deficiencies of "animal models" and calling for a new approach to safety testing and health research using state-of-the-art techniques. Advances in biology, genetics, computer science and robotics have given scientists new tools to help identify the root causes of human toxicity and disease.
HSI's report, "Advancing Safety Science and Health Research with Innovative, Non-Animal Tools," calls for a groundbreaking transatlantic research partnership to bolster the technology revolution taking place in pharmaceutical and chemical safety testing using cutting-edge non-animal techniques.Learn More

Humane Society International is praising a significant move by Chinese authorities away from an almost exclusively animal testing paradigm for cosmetics. The National Institutes for Food and Drug Control released a proposal for a new in vitro test standard for cosmetic ingredients as part of China’s ongoing efforts to align its regulatory frameworks with those of key international trading partners, providing technology supporting future trade in cosmetics, and further developing Chinese programs and infrastructures for non-animal test method development and validation.
