Research involving animals
As part of our efforts to remain at the forefront of medical and scientific advances we conduct limited research using animals. This research contributes to groundbreaking developments in understanding and treating diseases such as cancer, deafness, MND, heart disease, Parkinson's and other neurological conditions which devastate millions of lives every year.About out animal research>
