Women in Science Grant Challenges Status Quo Animal Research
Date:9/5/2013

e dosage and side effects can differ greatly. Such differing drug reactions are not trivial, and can be life threatening. For the cardiac drug d-Sotalol, the risk of death in women was 2.5 times greater than in men. Similarly, scientific evidence shows results from research on animals most often does not translate to humans. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), nine out of ten drugs that work in animals fail in humans. Documenting the impact of differences in research results even between men and women further challenges the use of other species to benefit humans.

Studies show women are more likely to oppose the harmful use of animals in research, testing, and education than men. As such, animal use can discourage or divert women from science careers. In NIH’s 2007 Intramural Research Program, women made up only 29% of tenure-track investigators and held just 19% of tenured senior investigator appointments. Women scientists are funded less and have lower salaries. And, according to 2010 National Science Foundation figures, women only comprised about 23% of full-time doctoral level science professors.

“The inequality between men and women in science contributes to status quo research that clings to using animals despite the unquestionable evidence against it,” said Dr. Capaldo. “The 2014-15 Fellowship Grant for Alternatives to Animal Research in Women’s Health and Sex Differences takes aim at this inequality by supporting budding women researchers, and pushes superior, modern science forward.”

The application deadline is Oct. 31, 2013. Award notification will be sent on or before Jan. 15, 2014. Visit http://alternativestoanimalresearch.org for more details.
