House Bill 4101, the Humane and Existing Alternatives in Research and Testing Sciences (HEARTS) Act, would direct the National Institutes of Health to ensure that non-animal methods are prioritized in proposals for all research funded by the agency. This would be accomplished by establishing incentives for non-animal research and testing and fully evaluating non-animal alternatives. The bill was previously introduced in 2019.
