Animal research is strictly controlled and regulated by the government authorities and is prohibited whenever valid alternative methods exist.

Join Italian scientists petitioning the Government and the Parliament to adopt any initiative appropriate to fulfil European Union legislation on animal research (EU Directive 63/2010), for a better balance between the need for scientific progress and animal protection and welfare. This manifesto is supported by senior scientists as well as by many young researchers who defend the dignity and value of research and scientific progress.
The petition “Save Italian Biomedical Research” has been signed by more than 15,000 people.
