Abstract [en]

Purpose. To investigate the influences of gender, discipline, and level onundergraduate students' views of the use of animals, in research. Method. In 1998, 888 university undergraduate students from six different programs were surveyed at Uppsala University for their views of animal use in biomedical research. Statistical analysis involved chi-square tests. Results. Most students found animal use morally acceptable and believed it plays a significant role in the treatment of human diseases. Engineering, law, and medicalstudents were the most supportive, whereas preschool-teaching students were the least supportive. Men were more supportive than were women. Sixth-term medical and nursingstudents had a more positive view than did their inexperienced first-term peers. Conclusion. The results of this study show that university students, who will be tomorrow's decision makers, are likely to continue supporting the use of animals in biomedicalresearch and teaching.
