Vision & values


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

FRAME’s ultimate aim is the elimination of the need to use laboratory animals in any kind of medical or scientific procedures.

We are dedicated to the promotion of the Three R’s (Replacement, Reduction & Refinement) as a way forward for animal experimentation.

We are realistic and recognise that the immediate eradication of laboratory animal use is not currently possible. Where the use of animals is necessary, we support keeping numbers to a minimum and promote the refinements of procedures to minimise suffering.

We are committed to demonstrating and promoting scientific excellence to develop new and alternative methods that are scientifically robust and reliable.

We promote the elimination of animal use through campaigning, educating, collaborating, advising and researching. The FRAME Alternatives Laboratory provides us with the facilities to research new and innovative ways to replace animals in medical and scientific experiments.

We collaborate with industry and academia to allow us to share and access new knowledge and expertise. This sharing is crucial for discovering, developing and refining alternatives.
