Animal Free Research UK’s CEO Carla Owen and Science Manager Dr Alpesh Patel explain, CRISPR can be a game-changer for humans but also for animals – if researchers have the courage and imagination to do things differently.
We all want to do our bit to help the COVID-19 effort, which is why I’m proud to announce a new partnership between the company I founded, Kirkstall Ltd, and Animal Free Research UK. Together we are today launching a call for proposals from UK scientists centred around the use of innovative organ-on-a-chip technology.
We are in the midst of a major pandemic with COVID-19. Such major outbreaks seem to occur about every 200 years, although in recent years we have experienced a number of epidemics based largely around mutation of viruses.
The Alliance for Human Relevant Science, of which Animal Free Research UK is a founding member, has today called for a fresh approach to biomedical research and drug discovery.
