A webinar and support web page provided by NC3Rs focussing on 3Rs advice for project licence applicants.
The Interspecies Database helps researchers to make an optimal choice of species and strain of the animal model, which is essential for efficient extrapolation of animal data to humans or other animals.
This site has been created to provide information about the 3Rs principles of animal use and guide their application in wildlife research.
A research article published in PLOS ONE which included an international online survey targeting individuals that work with and/or conduct research using laboratory mice. The survey aimed to identify the handling methods currently being used, and to determine common obstacles that may be preventing the wider uptake of non-aversive handling.
The guidelines have been instrumental in improving the housing and care of non-human primates at UK universities and other publicly funded laboratories internationally through, for example, requiring increased space for the animals, social housing and daily foraging opportunities – all of which are critical for NHP welfare.
A great introduction to how GM models are created and the basics of genetics for breeding.
This 18 minute video presentation has been created by NC3Rs to serve as a foundation for this understanding, and to encourage scientists and animal technicians to consider and implement the 3Rs throughout their careers.
Senior Newcastle University Animal Care Technician Emma Hamilton has written an article on the development of 'non-aversive' handling (NAH) at Newcastle University which was recently published in the IAT Journal 'Animal Technology and Welfare'.
This page on the NC3Rs website provides advice on the housing of laboratory dogs, tools for their welfare assessment, and suggestions for refinement of procedures used in safety assessment studies.
