A brighter future for humans and animals
Animal Free Research UK has a 50-year history of uniting animal-loving communities and scientists to create a world where we will be able to cure diseases faster, without animals suffering. We want everyone to think big and imagine that future which is within our grasp.
Our new short film A Brighter Future shows our vision for a brighter future for humans and animals.
With your help, we can free animals from laboratories for good.

In the cosmetics industry, the most common animals used for testing are guinea pigs, rabbits, rats, and mice. According to the Humane Society International, globally, around 500,000 animals die in cosmetic testing every year.
All those who attended our recent Summer School’s graduation event should feel optimistic and excited about the future – especially for animal free research.
The UK’s science community is today invited to nominate trailblazing scientists for a new award. The Pioneer Medal recognises and celebrates scientists carrying out animal free research which can deliver more effective treatments for human diseases faster than current methods.
