One of the key policy areas of focus for the BIA is pre-clinical research. The use of animals is a key part of research in the safe and efficient development of medicines, and is a legal obligation for researchers.

Good science and good animal welfare go hand-in-hand, and this video from the Wellcome Trust highlights just how important the use of animals is when researchers seek to unravel the complexities of disease and human biology.
