SUPPORT OUR BREAST CANCER RESEARCH
Every minute of every day, 7 animals are used in research in the UK
We have awarded grants to over 200 research projects since our foundation in 1970
Our work is funded entirely by your generous support. Your donation helps to fund some of the most advanced and successful human-related techniques in many areas of medical research including cancer, Alzheimer’s, asthma, heart and liver disease.
We’ve partnered with Action Challenge so you can fundraise and save animals from the lab with a walk, jog or run through some breathtaking UK scenery. Sign up for your challenge today!
Supervised by Dr Yubing Shi at Northampton University, Zhuo Song is using computer modelling to help replace sheep and pig experiments in the clinical study of artificial hearts.

Supervised by Dr Zaynah Maherally at the University of Portsmouth, Thomas Clark is unlocking the role of pericytes (cells that line blood vessels) in an all-human blood-brain barrier model, to help replace rats and mice in brain tumour research.
