Animals, Research, and Alternatives: Measuring Progress 50 Years Later

 

Speakers

John Gluck, Ph.D.
University of New Mexico; Kennedy Institute of Ethics at Georgetown University
Presentation: What is Missing in the Ethics of Animal Research

John Gluck, Ph.D., is currently emeritus professor of psychology at the University of New Mexico and affiliate faculty of the Kennedy Institute of Ethics, Georgetown University. Trained as a laboratory primatologist and clinical psychologist, he worked for many years with animal models of abnormal development, with a particular interest in the effects of early experience on learning. Following a fellowship at the Kennedy Institute of Ethics and the National Institutes of Health where he studied general bioethics, research ethics, and the moral standing of animals, his work has been solely devoted to research ethics. In that capacity, he has been the director of Research Ethics Service Project in the Office of Research at the University of New Mexico (UNM), co-director of the UNM Health Science Center Ethics Institute, and senior research fellow at the Kennedy Institute of Ethics. His most recent book, authored with Tom Beauchamp, Barbara Orlans, Rebecca Dresser, and David Morton is The Human Use of Animals:  Case Studies in Ethical Choice, published by Oxford University Press in 2008. He is currently working on a book about his ethical development tentatively titled Released:  the Rediscovery of Ambivalence in the Use of Animals in Research.
