Developing medicines
The development process for new medicines can take 15 years and this lesson will help pupils understand why. They understand that new medicines require many stages of testing and trialling, including the use of animals for scientific and legal reasons, and will consider their thoughts and feelings about the ethics of animal research in that context.
