Between 3Rs: Collaborating to Promote Alternatives to Animal Models
The North American 3Rs Collaborative was created recently to advance the education and science of the 3Rs – refining, reducing and replacing the use of animals in research. Members come from academia, industry, and government (including Charles River Laboratories which helped launch the Collaborative.) Eureka spoke to Norman Peterson, Director of Veterinary Sciences/Translation Sciences at MedImmune and the secretary of the NA3RsC to learn more about the Collaborative’s effort to advance science, innovation and animal welfare through sharing. He also spoke about how MedImmune’s use of imaging in drug development is also advancing the 3Rs.
