Animal alternatives boosted by PhD funding

The National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research has pledged to fund 14 PhD studentships to develop alternatives to animals in research, all starting in 2014.

The NC3Rs studentships are each worth £90,000 over three years. They will go to 14 different institutions including the University of Oxford, the University of Liverpool, the University of Hertfordshire with GlaxoSmithKline, the Royal Veterinary College, and the Babraham Institute at the University of Cambridge.

This brings the organisation’s total funding for training PhD students to almost £5 million and 51 studentships.
