REFINEMENT: use techniques and procedures that minimize pain and distress.

REPLACEMENT: substitute animal models with non-animal techniques or lower organisms.

Adapted from: Russel, WMS and RL Burch (1959). The Principles of Humane Experimental Technique. Universities Federation of Animal Welfare: England, 238 p.

  • ORI-IACUC: Committee developed to help ensure that researchers and the university are meeting the requirements of the Animal Welfare Act.
  • eSirius: UK's online IACUC protocol management and animal ordering system.
  • AWIC: Animal Welfare Information Center.
  • OLAW: Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare website.
