Our position on animal research

Cancer Research UK is a member of the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) and endorses the AMRC's position on the use of animals in medical research. All AMRC member charities support this principle, as outlined in this statement.

We are a signatory to the Concordat on Openess on Animal Research which sets out how organisations report the use of animals in scientific, medical and veterinary research in the UK.

We have also made a committment with funders across Europe towards ensuring responsible research involving animals.
