Under Professor Lorna Harries at ARC 2.0 in Exeter, Dr Nicola Jeffery and her team have made a significant breakthrough in the work they’re doing to identify the factors involved in the development of type 2 diabetes. This could lead to the discovery of new ways to treat – and possibly reverse the condition.
This is an exciting and potentially very important discovery, which illustrates the power of focusing on human biology from the off. This could not have been done using animals, due to genetic differences that complicate rather than facilitate our understanding of human diseases.
This is our time to make change happen – and Animal Free Research UK with your support forges on its ambitious vision to create a world where human diseases are cured faster without animal suffering.
We need everyone’s help and support to push forward, fund these breakthroughs and demonstrate with true science that human diseases can be defeated – animal free.
