Identification - implementation - dissemination
In this section, the 3R Research Foundation wishes to raise awareness regarding selected 3R methods aimed at resolving specific problems in the field of life sciences.
The examples presented were selected by the 3R Foundation’s Evaluation Committee. High priority is given to methods which have a high impact on the number of, and burden on, ex-perimental animals. Within the scope of project evaluation, some of the methods were con-sidered to be already established. For this reason, the research project in question could not be funded owing to limited financial resources. However, the practical application of 3R methods for the solution of specific problems is a prerequisite for their implementation and dissemination. The authors were invited to describe their experiences with 3R methods in a few sentences, with reference to their recent corresponding publications.
In case of further questions, please contact the authors directly. The projects can be accessed with key words given in the column on the left. You can find additional methods among the over 130 projects supported by the 3R Research Foundation, which are to be found on this website in the form of extended abstracts.
Please note that a comparable “market place” for 3R-relevant methods has recently been established by the EPAA. There, priority is given to methods used to assess the safety of pharmaceuticals and chemicals (toxicity testing).
