Leading human rights defence barrister Michael Mansfield QC has endorsed the conditions for the EDM’s call for properly moderated, public scientific debates about the misleading claim that the results from animal experiments can ‘predict’ responses of human patients.
The EDM places it’s call for open debate within the context of the animal experimentation community’s ‘Concordat of Openness on Animal Research’, which commits its signatories to developing communications with the media and public.
