Retina UK is a member of the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC). We support the principle of using animals in research when it is necessary to advance understanding of health and disease and to develop new treatments.
This research only takes place where there is no alternative available. All AMRC member charities support this principle, as outlined in the statement linked to below.
Our research community fully supports the implementation of the 3Rs (replacement, reduction and refinement of animals use in research).
