Ethics committee

Comité de ética

CINBIO is committed to maximum transparency in any issue which may be susceptible of generating controversy, as in the case of biomedical research and animal experimentation. In addition, CINBIO adhered in 2016 to the COSCE Agreement on transparency in animal testing in collaboration with EARA. (Institutional statement).


The University of Vigo Animal Testing Ethics Committee (CEEA/OH) emerged from the commitment to ensure that animal subjects are well treated, especially when they take part in research projects.

CEEA activities are carried out with the purpose of ethically assessing animal testing procedures, ensuring the wellbeing of all the animals used in laboratory experiments, and promoting capacity-building courses for those individuals who will be in contact with the animal subjects.
