UCL launches animal research site

University College London has set up a website dedicated to providing information about its use of animals in research.

The website has been launched with two case studies of UCL’s use of animals in research, and more case studies will be added over time. It also includes information on the number of animals of each species the university used in its research–181,295 since 2013–and descriptions of the processes that govern UCL’s use of animals in research. 

Adrian Deeny, director of biological services at UCL and the person who oversaw development of the website, said that the university wanted to be “absolutely open” about how, when and why it used animals in research, and that “A lot of claims made about animal research are based on information that is out of date or out of context.”
