For over 50 years, FRAME has worked tirelessly to replace animals in medical experiments.
Originally founded in 1969 by animal-lover Dorothy Hegarty, FRAME was established to work with researchers and institutions to end animal testing. Today, we champion Dorothy’s legacy across the world by funding innovative science, sharing cutting-edge non-animal methods, and educating on human-relevant approaches to research.
Our vision is a world where no animal suffers for science.
Join us as we work to replace animal testing with human-relevant science.
Together, we will create a better world for animals and humans.
