Animal Research

Animal research strategy for RGU

Animal research continues to make contributions to understanding health and developing modern medicines and surgical techniques. It accounts for a small but essential part of RGU's research as the University remains committed to the principles of the 3Rs - reduction, refinement, and replacement, using the latest science and technologies to drive it forward.
