Animal free research is NOT science fiction. Please ask your MP to contact the Prime Minister and urge him to take bold action to modernise medical research. Every minute of every day, six animals are used in research in the UK. Yet this outdated approach is not delivering medical progress, with 90 percent of new drugs tested on animals failing to benefit human health. In countries such as the Netherlands and USA, policymakers are accelerating animal free research, but the UK Government is lagging behind. We want you to join us by using our quick and easy tool to urge the Prime Minister to set up a dedicated department or ministerial position to accelerate the replacement of animals with high-tech alternatives. The development of animal free techniques is making strong progress, thanks to innovative work like the projects funded by your generous support. Now, the Government must take bold action to accelerate the transition from animal experiments to human relevant science. This critical issue has a major impact on public health and needs attention at the highest level of Government. It's time to modernise medical research.
Use our quick and easy tool to find and message your MP and ask for decisive action.
