NC3Rs reports £350m investment during past decade

The National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research has awarded more than £350 million through 167 grants in the past 10 years, it says in its research review.

Details of investments over the past decade are set out in the review, with projects classified by scientific discipline and which of three ‘Rs’ it covers.

Overall, research into neuroscience and behaviour received the most funding, it says, and had the most research into ‘refinement’ of animal testing procedures. Research that involved replacing animals with a different option was spread evenly across all scientific classifications and was the focus of more than half of the total awards.
