Edinburgh Imaging Facility Preclinical
Preclinical imaging is the visualization of living animals for research purposes, such as drug development, helping us further our understanding of various disease processes.
Edinburgh Imaging Preclinical maintains its own web page which you can find, here.
Visitors to this site are welcome to read the University Policy on the Use of Animals in Research.
The University of Edinburgh uses animals only in research programmes of the highest quality, when their use is justified:
- When no alternatives are available
All such work is carried out under licences, which are reviewed & approved by the Home Office in accordance with the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986.
Licences are issued only if the potential benefits of the work are likely to outweigh the effects on the animals concerned.
The Preclinical Facility is state-of-the-art providing in vivo, non-invasive imaging of structure & function of all organs & tissues of the body.
