Research

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:

  • Scientifically
  • Ethically
  • Legally
  • 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.
