Care as science: the role of animal husbandry in translational medicine


  • Dr Carrie Friese

    London School of Economics and Political Science

Project summary

It is becoming increasingly common to hear life scientists say that scientific findings rely upon quality animal care. This research project asks why and how animal care is being made an explicit part of scientific knowledge production in the context of translational medicine today. In summary, Dr Friese seeks to understand how the ethical debates surrounding animal experimentation are being transformed into a scientific priority in the contemporary moment, and what this means for both in vivo science and translational medicine.
