I replied that I did not like the idea of providing research on lab animals. That would have nothing to do with the job which I applied for, but, the researcher I was working for would have to do with that kind of research episodically. I added that I was of two minds about animal research because I had parents who had been diagnosed with cancer. I would be devoutly thankful for any benefit they received as a result of animal research. I could justify this type of research out of self-interest, but I didn't like it.
