FRAME subscribes to a philosophy called The Three Rs to combat the unacceptable levels of animal use in laboratories.

Replacement

FRAME is dedicated to the development of new and valid methods that will replace the need for laboratory animals in medical and scientific research, education and testing.

Reduction

Where the use of animals is currently necessary, FRAME supports the reduction of numbers involved to an unavoidable minimum.

Refinement

FRAME also supports the refinement of experimental procedures to minimise any suffering caused.
