Resources and activities around NAMs (replacement technologies used to assess drug and chemical safety).
Join our community of researchers, developers, industry and regulatory end-users working together to accelerate the use of new approach methodologies.
Learn more about what NAMs are and how they can be applied to progress the 3Rs.
Projects to ensure that the in vivo tests involved in ED assessment are as robust as possible, particularly focusing on aquatic species.
Quarterly e-newsletter to keep the scientific community updated on news from the NC3Rs Toxicology and Regulatory Sciences programme.
Key results and recommendations from an EPAA/MEB/NC3Rs collaboration focused on chronic toxicity studies for monoclonal antibodies (mAbs).
A webinar to highlight available opportunities to minimising non-human primate use in drug development.
Opportunities to reduce the use of non-human primates in toxicology programmes.
A webinar to raise awareness of the microsampling technique and encourage wider adoption.
