The House Appropriations Committee has advanced language instructing the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to accelerate efforts to move away from research models that rely on animals. As you know, the responsible and ethical use of animals is an essential component of biomedical research. Animal models are critical in advancing cures and better treatments for brain disorders and other diseases that impact the health and lives of millions of Americans. Policies that restrict or limit the ethical use of animals in research will suppress future discoveries and jeopardize our ability to improve brain health. Please ask Congress to support the continued, well-regulated use of animals in research.
