Animal research is extremely heavily regulated at
the Federal, state and even the local level, by laws ranging from the
Animal Welfare Act to the local laws on facility inspection. The links
on this page will introduce you to the scope, depth and implementation
of laws and regulations.
This page is under construction. When completed it will include articles and references that focus on the legal and regulatory issues for researchers and for society at large. In the meantime, you can find immense amounts of useful information on our Links page, described below.
Our main Links page has hundreds
of sites organized into related groups for your convenience. The groups
include regulatory and legal, scientific and educational, and lots of
other interesting and useful Internet locations.
