Fixed Term, 3 years
The NC3Rs has a long-standing programme of work focusing on improving the design, analysis and reporting of animal experiments in order to ensure that studies are robust and reproducible, contribute to the knowledge base, and avoid the unnecessary use of animals. The team currently includes the NC3Rs lead for experimental design and two Science Managers.
We are extending this programme of work to develop guidance to support improved reporting of in vitro research. These guidelines (working title, the RIVER guidelines - reporting In Vitro Experiments Responsibly) will optimise the reproducibility of in vitro studies and improve confidence in their validity to support wider uptake.
Application of the 3Rs plays an essential role in achieving scientific excellence. The NC3Rs supports the development and uptake of new research tools and models with reduced reliance on the use of animals and/or improved animal welfare and its activities are divided between its role as a 3Rs research funder and programmes led by its own team of scientists.
