Several groups across North America include 3Rs advancement in their objectives. Recognizing a lasting need to foster improved communication and collaboration around the science, reporting and implementation of the 3Rs, several members of the research community founded the North American 3Rs Collaborative (NA3RsC). The mission of the NA3RsC is to advance the education and science of the 3Rs –refining , reducing and replacing the use of animals in research. Members include academia, industry, and government. In its first year, NA3RsC elected a Board of Directors, approved its by-laws, and gained non-profit 501(c)3 status.
Our online collaborative space, the Virtual Education Community (VEC), is one of our most value added tools. The VEC includes a theater to host live symposia, a community pavilion connecting us with other 3Rs organizations, an area for 3Rs-related vendors, a resource hub, and a platform for 3Rs-related discussions. The NA3RsC looks forward to working collaboratively for broad reaching impact in order to set a new precedent for the 3Rs culture in North America.
