The Medical Research Modernization Committee (MRMC) is a non-profit health advocacy organization composed of medical professionals
and scientists who identify and promote efficient, reliable and cost-effective
research methods. The MRMC focuses exclusively on the scientific merits
of different research approaches, even though some undoubtedly raise
serious and important ethical concerns. MRMC-sponsored activities
include research, publishing and student education.

Increasing numbers of scientists and clinicians are challenging
animal experimentation on medical and scientific grounds.1-3 In the United Kingdom, for example,
82% of general practitioners said they were "concerned that animal data can be misleading
when applied to humans", according to a 2004 survey commissioned
by Europeans for Medical Progress.4 Considerable evidence
demonstrates that animal experimentation is inefficient and unreliable,
while newly developed methodologies are more valid and less expensive
than animal studies.
