About the Institute


Our Vision:

A day when methods based on humane human-specific responses will be used by industry and regulatory agencies to determine the safety and efficacy of substances. This vision fuels the passion we have for our organization, driving us to provide innovative solutions for industry and regulatory agencies.

Our Mission:

  • To drive the optimization and application of scientifically robust in vitro methods that are accepted by regulatory agencies and adopted by industry worldwide.

  • To create a forum in which industry, regulatory agencies and animal welfare organizations can work together to develop humane scientific tools for testing.

  • To utilize our expertise to create educational and outreach programs that will expand the adoption of non-animal test methods around the globe.

About IIVS:

Internationally recognized as a leader in the in vitro testing (alternatives to animal testing) field, IIVS couples rigorous scientific and compliance programs with education and outreach initiatives to promote the use and acceptance of these methods worldwide. IIVS is proud to be supported by our generous contributors whose principles and objectives align with ours. Their support is fundamental to the success of our Educational and Outreach programs.
