Our Focus

Our vision is a world where non-animal methods are accepted as scientific best practice.

FRAME believes in the development of better scientific methods for the benefit of humans and animals. 

Our 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 

Through the use of ethically donated human tissues, computer modelling and other new and innovative techniques, research can provide data that is more directly relevant to human conditions and disease. FRAME uses laboratory and desk based research to investigate such potential new, valid scientific methods and promotes them through various campaigns.  

In the UK 3.4 million scientific procedures were carried out on animals in 2019, just a 9% drop over a decade. Our ultimate aim is to remove the need for laboratory animal use in any scientific procedures for the benefit of human health. Animals are still heavily used to investigate human disease and predict human responses to chemicals and drugs. Whilst a total end to animal use is not immediately possible, we believe the current scale of animal experimentation is unacceptable and unnecessary. 

Modern scientific methods that use human tissue, computer modelling and other new and innovative techniques, can provide data that are more directly relevant to human conditions and disease. Despite a legal requirement to use methods that don’t involve animals where they are available, their development and uptake remains slow.   We want to change this.
