All AMRC members have different strategies for how they fund high quality research. Although not all fund or have funded research involving animals, all AMRC charities support the principle of using animals when it is necessary to better understand health conditions and diseases and to develop new and better treatments. Charities only use animals in research when there are no alternatives.
In 2013, our Animal Research Working Group helped us to revise our policy on animal research. We have put together a guidance pack that explains what the changes are, why they are important, how they can be implemented and the timeframes when they need to be put into practice to comply with AMRC’s policy.
How to implement AMRC policies on animal research will help you use these resources by providing context to each document.
