FRAME believes in the development of better scientific methods for the benefit of humans, animals and the environment. Its ultimate aim is the elimination of the need to use laboratory animals in any kind of medical or scientific procedures, but FRAME accepts that a total end to their use cannot be achieved immediately. However, the current scale of animal experimentation is unacceptable. Where the use of animals is currently necessary, FRAME supports the reduction of numbers involved to an unavoidable minimum, and refinement of the experimental procedures to minimise any suffering caused.
Through its own laboratory and desk-based research FRAME is continually investigating and developing new methods at the forefront of science. It also collaborates with other organisations, industry and laboratories across a wide range of biological and medical fields.
