The FRAME lab is not a contract research organisation. It does not seek to generate income by carrying out simple compound testing. We aim to form beneficial collaborations that promote non-animal methods but also benefit our industry partners.
Our ideal is to produce data showing biological safety and efficacy of compounds in our models, and subsequently to promote the use of non animal methods. We aim to do this by public dissemination of the results by both partners, through advertising and press releases, as well as publication in scientific journals.
Details of the scope of the work, the methods to be used, finance, timelines and expected outcomes are formally agreed in advance with industry partners. We also ensure that agreement is reached on intellectual property and confidentiality where necessary.
