Embedding the 3Rs in COVID-19 return to research plans
The NC3Rs is committed to supporting all researchers and animal care staff to continue to conduct good science by keeping the 3Rs a priority.
Here we outline key considerations and relevant resources to support all in vivo researchers as they return to working with laboratory animals following lockdowns (e.g because of covid).
This guidance has been categorised into four equally important areas to take into consideration when embedding the 3Rs in return to research plans. It remains important to discuss local health and safety considerations with your institution and to ensure you have the relevant permissions before commencing animal research.
