VISION/SUMMARY

 

The south-east asian area is currently at the beginning of a development concerning animal protection, especially with regards to laboratory animals. The 3R-principle is already firmly established in the western world.

At the University of Colombo, Sri Lanka, it is planned to found the first 3R-Center and employ alternative methods. Furthermore, educational events concerning alternative methods are going to be implemented into the curriculum of the University postgraduate courses in laboratory animal sciences in order to train future generations of scientists.

The project is emphatically backed by Animalfree Research.
