What we do

The NC3Rs mission is delivered through a range of programmes which are showcased in this area of our website.  

We award funding for research, innovation and early career training to a wide range of insitutuions to accelerate the development and uptake of 3Rs approaches. More information about the 3Rs can be found on our About the 3Rs pages.

NC3Rs scientific staff lead on a number of projects across the 3Rs, from animal welfare to toxicology, focusing on changing policy, practice and regulations.

The boxes below split our portfolio into three key categories. Click through to see projects in that category, or use the search box to find something specific. You will find details on each project, including its aims, impacts and associated publications.
