Quotes from Notable Physicians
“All advances in medicine have an underlying basis in biomedical research. Animal research is done with great care and is done with special concern for the ethical treatment of the animals. The importance of medical research lies in the fact that new knowledge in medicine and innovative development is going to take place only when medical research is done.” –Michael E. DeBakey, Jr., M.D. (Legendary Heart Surgeon and Inventor)

“Virtually every major medical advance for both humans and animals has been achieved through biomedical research using animal models to study and find a cure for a disease and through animal to prove the safety and efficacy of a new treatment.” – C. Everett Coop, M.D. (U.S. Surgeon General 1982-1989)
