Tech3Rs: A newsletter for animal technicians

Tech3Rs is our regular newsletter providing animal technicians with the latest news from the NC3Rs. Each issue features updates on recent advances in the 3Rs and highlights new resources, research and events that we think will be of interest to animal technicians.


Each issue of Tech3Rs will be available online to download on this page. We will place a banner in our NC3Rs newsletter to alert subscribers to new editions, so register now if you have not done so already to be added to the mailing list.

We will also be printing hard copies of each issue which we can post out to animal research facilities across the UK. If you would like to request hard copies for your institution, please email us at

Submit your ideas

If you have any ideas for future issues or are working on a 3Rs approach you would like us to feature, please get in touch – we would love to hear from you!

NEW: Dedicated animal technicans hub

Further resources to help animal technicians to embed the 3Rs can be found on our dedicated animal technician hub.
