Animal Free Research UK
About Animal Free Research UK
Animal Free Research UK believe that experiments on animals are scientifically and ethically unjustifiable, and that pioneering animal free research provides the best chance of finding treatments for human diseases.
Whilst UK law enshrines the principles of the 3Rs – the replacement, reduction and refinement of the use of animals in research, Animal Free Research UK does not endorse the 3Rs. Instead, their focus is and always has been solely on replacement – enabling scientists to stop using animals in medical research.
Animal Free Research only support and fund research that uses non-animal methods. They do not fund refinement or reduction research, or any research that uses animals or animal-derived biomaterials.
