At the University of Gothenburg, research is conducted in many fields. Some research uses animals, primarily in biomedicine, where experiments are crucial for the development of new medications.

Experiments on animals are also conducted in the natural sciences and social sciences, where the research can aim to protect wildlife populations, ward off environmental threats, or understand human psychological behavior.

Research with animal experiments requires special ethics approval and the regulations for how animal experiments may be conducted are extremely stringent. At the University of Gothenburg, animals are tended by qualified staff and their well-being is monitored and controlled by veterinarians.

We believe the conversation about the advantages and necessity of animal experiments can only move forward with openness and knowledge. To this end, we want to provide insight into how we work with animals in our research.
