The History of Animal Testing and Alternatives
Utrecht University

Promotor(es): Prof. dr. Toine Pieters, Prof. dr. Bert Theunissen, Dr David Baneke
Aanstelling: vanaf november 2016

My research will focus on the history of animal testing and alternatives in the Netherlands in general and at the RIVM in particular, during the time period 1950-2016. Special attention will be given to the public debate and how this debate interacts with developments in science and policy. I will also consider how these historic developments are related to changes in public-science and human-animal relations since the 1950s.
