The program also stands as the main point of contact for Stanford groups outside of EH&S for any issues, questions or concerns arising relating to animal researcher health and safety. U.S. federal laws require that non-human animal research occur to show the safety and efficacy of new treatments before any human research will be allowed to be conducted.

Not only do we humans benefit from this research and testing, but hundreds of drugs and treatments developed for human use are now routinely used in veterinary clinics as. Animal safety begins with lab directors (faculty/lab managers/supervisors) providing lab specific training related to working with animals used in research operations.
