Support IFER

Research supported by the International Foundation for Ethical Research has confirmed that the advancement of science without the use of animals is more than a promise – it is a reality limited only by the resources we have available.

An investment in IFER’s mission is an opportunity to:

  • change the way science is conducted
  • value compassion as much as knowledge
  • ensure scientific and medical progress
  • help to end the needless suffering of countless animals in laboratories and classrooms

"Ultimately, if we can create perfect or near-perfect human tissues and organs in the lab from scratch, those can be used instead of animals in applications such as drug testing and biomedical research."
