I'm writing to ask that you stop funding experiments that squander dollars on ineffective and antiquated animal experimentation and instead commit to ending experiments on animals altogether. Please implement a policy for funding only modern, human-relevant research methods and provide a clear strategy and timeline for achieving this goal. Human clinical and epidemiological studies, human tissue- and cell-based research methods, cadavers, sophisticated high-fidelity human-patient simulators, and computational models offer more reliable, more precise, less expensive, and more humane alternatives to experiments on animals.
Thank you for helping to achieve a better future for animals and human health.
