Animal Free Research UK is the UK's leading non-animal medical research charity.
Globally, scientific research uses millions of animals in experiments every year.
These experiments can cause pain, suffering and inevitably death for the animals used in them, for results that are of dubious relevance to human health. So what is the alternative?
Animal Free Research UK develops non-animal research methods to replace animal experiments. We enable scientific research and make medical progress without causing suffering to animals. We have successfully developed new non-animal research techniques that have saved thousands of animals and made a real contribution to the fight against human illness.
Animal experiments are an inefficient approach to medical research in a modern world, and the development of non-animal replacements is imperative. Abandoning animal research in favour of more advanced non-animal methods could ultimately speed medical progress – to the benefit of both humans and animals.
