A DVD titled 'Training laboratory primates' has been produced by EUPRIM-Net, an EU-funded network of eight primate research centres.
The NC3Rs has announced funding of £2.6 million for ten new projects that aim to replace, reduce or refine the use of animals in research and testing.
The number of procedures carried out in 2007 was just over 3.2 million, a rise of approximately 6 per cent (189,500) on 2006.
Professor Ian Kimber, University of Manchester, has been appointed as the new Chair of the Board of the NC3Rs.
Although primarily to be used by investigators and members of Animal Ethics Committees in Australia, the new Guidelines are relevant to those conducting, reviewing and managing research with animals elsewhere in the World.
Five of the UK's major funders of animal research today published common guidelines for using animals in research.
The NC3Rs is a scientific organisation at the forefront of applying the 3Rs (Replacement, Reduction and Refinement) to the use of animals in research in the biosciences.
The winner of the third annual 3Rs Prize is Dr Charlotte Gower
