You spoke and we listened.
Thank you to everyone who participated in our 3Rs survey! We truly appreciate your time and effort.
We look forward to inviting you to participate in our upcoming initiatives and sharing beneficial resources with you to help you and your animals.
Overall based on responses from 83 individuals most participants work with animals (74%) especially mice & rats and most people want training materials and handouts (>75%). We've identified sentinel programs as a potential new initiative as 41% of participants indicate that they still use full live animal programs. In terms of reduction & replacement, fewer people were sure what was in use, but microphysiological systems and digital biomarkers were near the top. We were pleased to see that 95% of participants report institutional commitment to the 3Rs and we are excited to support that commitment further.
