Every year 34,000 children in the UK are hospitalised by the highly contagious respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) which is the main cause of bronchiolitis. 

Decades of animal research has failed to come up with an answer to RSV – it’s time for change. 

At Animal Free Research UK, we’re funding a project at the forefront of the human relevant revolution. Dr Claire Smith and her team are developing a new 3D model of the infant lung to find new ways to treat this life-threatening lung infection.

Every child should have the chance to be at home with their loved ones this winter, and every animal deserves the chance to live freely.

Donate today to give both children and animals alike that chance.


With your help, we can free animals from laboratories for good.

Boost your donations by 25% at no cost to you.

I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference.
