Our mission is to create a focused and sustained effort that advances the benefits of animal-based research and emerging alternatives to support and improve human and animal health.
The IOC was formed to:
Assess the impact and consequences of animal rights activism.
Support and synchronize programs that ensure the continued and ethical use of animals in pharmaceutical and biotechnical research.
Advance public understanding about the benefits and necessity of animal-based and emerging alternatives-based biomedical research to support and improve human and animal health.
