Early-Career Researchers Advancing 21st Century Science

Animals are out, and human-focused methods are in!

The Physicians Committee has an exciting new program that engages the next generation of scientists and promotes human-relevant methods in research. Early-Career Researchers Advancing 21st Century Science, or ERA21, works with students and emerging scientists and connects them to the benefits of human-relevant research. The ERA21 program uses a multifaceted approach to encourage research that employs human-relevant models, rather than animals, in order to advance biomedical and translational research.

The ERA21 team wants to bring human-based research to your institution! We can help organize an educational speaker series or host a symposium on human-based research.
