Alternatives and improvements
We aim to replace, reduce and refine the use of animals in research.
The University is committed to the principles of the 3Rs – replacing, reducing and refining the use of animals in research to minimise the effects on the animals concerned.
We hold an annual symposium for staff that are involved in animal research, with presentations from invited speakers and a poster competition. The aim is to share best practice and publicise recent contributions to the 3Rs across different animal species and disciplines.
