Between June 2020 and November 2021 BBSRC, in consultation with the Physiological Society, conducted a survey on the use of models in research. The purpose of the survey was to gain insight into how researchers currently use their experimental systems and models and how they expect to use them in future. By improving our understanding of the current and future use of models in research, BBSRC will be better placed to ensure that the health of the discipline is maintained and that opportunities for further improvement are identified and implemented.
