The Society of Biology's Animal Science Group brings together a range of UK bodies actively involved in conducting, supporting, or formulating policy in regard to animal researchOngoing
Animal Science Group
The Animal Science Group (ASG) is a Special Interest Group of the Royal Society of Biology. It represents the broad spectrum of UK bodies actively involved in conducting, supporting, or formulating policy in regard to animal research. The Academy is one of 30 current member organisations. The ASG co-ordinates the engagement of the research community with the Home Office, for example relating to the transposition of the European Directive on ‘animals used for scientific purposes’ into UK law. The Academy also worked with ASG members to develop a Concordat on openness on animals in research.
The Academy is represented on the ASG by Dr Claire Cope, Policy Manager.
