Openness in Practice: #WhatIf We Talk About Our Work?

Openness is all about building trust across the stakeholders and communities that actively engage in biomedical research. The ability to talk freely and factually about working with animal models is essential for building support and informing public opinion.

The U.S. Animal Research Openness (USARO) Initiative has been underway since 2020 and is dedicated to providing resources and education to individuals in research organizations, as well as to the general public, about essential research for the betterment of animal and human health.

The #WhatIf social media campaign was launched in fall 2023, in collaboration with advocacy groups and academia, to further prompt engagement in open conversations about the importance of research involving animals. The opportunity to learn from each other and share stories and experiences will add exponential value to the openness initiative within our organizations.
