Animal Research


There are strict laws that control animal research.

The Home Office strictly regulates animal research under the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 (amended in 2012), also referred to as ASPA.

The legislation describes in detail what is required to undertake animal research and includes guidance on the care and welfare of animals, as well as the strict licencing, training, and monitoring processes involved.

All our regulated work is carried out under licences and the University is subject to inspections and review by the Home Office to ensure compliance with the law and animal welfare guidelines.
