  • Mission statement

    Our primary objective is to support and assist scientists to implement and develop new techniques which are human-relevant and will replace animal experiments. We award grants to scientists based in the UK following a rigorous peer-reviewed selection procedure. Only those projects of the highest scientific calibre and with the best potential for the replacement of animals are awarded funding. Since 1971 we have awarded grants to over 160 research projects, for some of the most advanced and successful human-related techniques in the most diverse areas of medical research including cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, asthma, kidney, heart and liver disease and diabetes.
