A full press release can be found here: http://www.nc3rs.org.uk/news.asp?id=1906

UK animal research laboratories will get 1 million to develop networks of shared resources to reduce and refine their animal use, has been announced today (26th February, 2013).

A new initiative of the National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research (NC3Rs), the 'Infrastructure for Impact' scheme supports the development of shared tissue banks, databases and equipment across multiple sites and institutes using animals resources that would otherwise be managed and utilised independently.

Open for applications today, the scheme aims to reduce and refine animal use in science in the short- to medium-term by funding improvements to the infrastructure that underpins UK biosciences research.

The funding has been provided by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills as part of the 600 million extra science funding allocation from the 2012 Autumn Budget Statement.

Minister for Universities and Science David Willetts, said:

"This investment will further support the excellent work of the NC3Rs. It helps deliver the Government's commitment to using scientific advances to replace, reduce and refine animal use wherever possible."
