The Rise and Fall of Animal Experimentation: 
Empathy, Science, and the Future of Research 

Professor Miller will review aspects of his new book which concerns the history of the use of animals in biomedical research; the history of the movement that opposes these studies; whether animal research is really effective and under what conditions; whether animal research is ethical, and new scientific paradigms that are rapidly making animal based research obsolete as we enter the new era of anthropocentric experimentation.

This lecture will be held in person for Northwestern students, faculty, and staff—in the Searle Seminar Room in the Lurie Research Building (303 E Superior). Chicago Campus. For those outside the Northwestern community and anyone who would prefer to attend remotely, the Zoom option will continue to be available.
