The NC3Rs: Pioneering better science


If you are a scientist, animal technician, veterinarian, regulator, funder or policy maker, the NC3Rs can help you to:

  • Drive scientific and technological developments that replace, reduce or refine the use of animals in research (the 3Rs)
  • Ensure your animal experiments are as robust and reproducible as possible
  • Provide the best welfare for laboratory animals

 

Science-led and evidence-based, we fund research and early careers, foster collaborations between universities and industry to develop and commercialise 3Rs technologies, and provide information on the latest advances to put the 3Rs into practice.

A taste of Pint of Science 2019

We look back at the events we sponsored in Birmingham, London and Newcastle as part of Pint of Science 2019, which featured NC3Rs-funded researchers from a variety of fields speaking about their work.

Funding awarded for transfer of 3Rs approaches

The Skills and Knowledge Transfer scheme supports the exchange of models with 3Rs potential, including joint funding with Cancer Research UK.

Awards to accelerate translation of 3Rs technologies for industrial use

Our new Technologies to Tools scheme, a collaboration with Medicines Discovery Catapult, offers NC3Rs-funded researchers an opportunity to maximise the 3Rs impacts of their work.

Visit our new CRACK IT Innovation Platform website

The Innovation Platform will connect researchers across sectors and disciplines to accelerate the development, application and commercialisation of 3Rs technologies.
