Come See Our World!

Come See Our World (CSOW) is your window into the world of life changing research involving animals. We invite you to see the animals that are integral to medical progress.  Advancements in human and animal health would not be possible without these important animals, as well as their caregivers, researchers, non-animal models, and human volunteers.

CSOW brings you true stories and images of real animals in research settings. The site will continually grow as more pictures and articles are added. If you are curious about a specific animal or area of study, please send us a note. We will try our best to move that to the top of our “new things to add” list.

Join us for a journey into our world of medical progress and discover the animals that help save lives.

Mice have long been a model for human disease. Zebrafish provide insights into embryological development as well as human disease.  Dogs and Pigs were integral in the development of insulin treatments for diabetics.  Sheep have provided life-saving advancements for those with cardiovascular disease.  People with diseases like cancer and AIDS now have hope because of research with nonhuman primates. Our pets live long healthy lives thanks to vaccinations and many of the same treatments developed for humans.

We are honored and proud to be able to share the truth about the animals that have made the quality of our lives better.  Learn more about the animals that save lives every day.
