A new observational study will help to improve the welfare of macaques used in research after identifying behavioural indicators of wellness and pain.
A new paper published today in Journal of Neuroscience Methods documents refinements in how rhesus macaques used in fundamental neuroscience research are trained to enter transport devices.
Next month offers a chance to hear about exciting 3Rs research first hand, as we take part in Pint of Science, a worldwide science festival that brings researchers to your local pub to present their scientific discoveries.
We have launched our 2019 Research Review, featuring case studies on the work of 12 NC3Rs-funded researchers.
A paper describing the use of patient-derived stem cells to study motor neuron disease has been recognised with the annual £30k prize awarded by the NC3Rs and sponsored by GSK.
We are hosting a Twitter chat on Tuesday 5 March from 2pm to 4pm (GMT), which will give you a chance to ask questions about refined mouse handling methods and discuss your experiences.
Four new NC3Rs Training Fellowships, totalling £460k, have been awarded to talented 3Rs-minded postdoctoral researchers to support the development of their careers.
The NC3Rs, Medicines Discovery Catapult and the University of Liverpool MRC Centre for Drug Safety Science (CDSS) have today published a report outlining recommendations to accelerate the adoption of organ-on-a-chip (OOAC) technologies to
A consortium of academic institutions and SMEs led by Professor Raymond Pieters from the University of Applied Sciences Utrecht has recently been awarded £1 million by the NC3Rs to deliver Phase 2 of the 2017 DARTpaths CRACK IT Challenge.
Could your organisation sponsor the next CRACK IT Challenge to improve R&D and reduce reliance on animal models?
Our peer review and advice service supports UK funding bodies to ensure the 3Rs are properly implemented in the research they fun
As ever, 2018 has been a year full of activity for the NC3Rs. Our website’s news and blogs section has featured 38 posts this year covering a range of important 3Rs topics.
We are pleased to announce 17 new awards, totalling £1.53 million, made under our PhD studentship scheme including three awards made jointly with the British Heart Foundation (BHF) to projects focused on achieving 3Rs impacts within the field of
We are pleased to announce today that we have established a strategic collaboration with the Medicines Discovery Catapult (MDC) to help NC3Rs-funded researchers to translate their scientific findings into industry-ready products and services.
Amphibians are one of the most well-known experimental organisms. Despite this, knowledge of amphibian husbandry and welfare remains limited, with little established guidance or evidence-based refinements for their captive care.
The Consortium for Innovation and Quality in Pharmaceutical Development (IQ) and the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care International (AAALAC) have announced the winners of their Global 3Rs Awards 2018.
Work from an NC3Rs-funded PhD studentship has demonstrated that the level of fluid control used in macaque experiments can be minimised by identifying preferred fluid rewards.
Training non-human primates (NHPs) to perform cognitive tasks in the laboratory is a time-consuming process with important welfare and experimental limitations.
Today the UK’s NC3Rs signed a commitment with the China Rural Technology Development Centre (CRTDC) of the China Ministry of Science & Technology to collaborate on promoting scientific and technological innovations in the replacement, reduction
Researchers from the University of Cambridge, the University of Geneva and the Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL) have developed a 3D embryonic stem cell culture system capable of self-organising into the three major axes of the body.
