The Physicians Committee combines science and advocacy to help animals and promote human health in the strongest possible way. We’ve virtually eliminated animal use in medical training. We have made historic progress to end the use of chimpanzees in experiments. We have brought unprecedented awareness of animals to toxicology testing. We have built scienti!c credibility for plant-based diets, helping them gain acceptance by the U.S. government and by major health and research organizations.

We are now turning our attention to speci!c research targets: experiments in alcohol, diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and antibody production. We also have a strategic quick-response team that tackles emerging issues like rabies experiments on puppies in Taiwan. We are conducting cutting-edge clinical research. And as the world’s appetite for animal products shifts, our online programs are reaching China, India, and spanish-speaking countries.
