AMRC restates commitment to animal research

The Association of Medical Research Charities has reasserted its support for the use of animals in research.

The statement was released on 30 October but was ratified at a meeting in 2013. It outlines research methods undertaken by AMRC members. Techniques include research on lab-grown cells, tissue samples, computer modelling as well as use of animals. 

“Whilst not all our members are currently funding research using animals as part of their strategy, they all support the principle of using animals in research when it is necessary to advance understanding of serious health conditions to develop better treatments and there is no alternative that can be used to find out the same information without using animals,” the statement reads.
