Animals are an essential part of scientific research that deserve to have their lives refined, reduced, and replaced (3Rs).
We believe the best work is collaborative. That’s why we work with partners across academia, industry, and more to ensure high-quality science while improving the lives of research animals. We focus on key projects that have big impacts. Right now our initiatives are focused on
Refinement refers to methods that minimize pain, suffering, and distress of research animals as well as improving their welfare.
Reduction refers to methods that minimize the numbers of animals required per experiment or study designs to achieve robust results.
Replacement refers to methods or technologies which avoid, or replace, the use of animals.
