Advancing medical research without animals

The Innovative Methods and Alternatives to Animal Research Unit has been established to develop alternative methodologies and strategies that replace animals and animal products, while achieving medical advances through fundamental research.

As required by alternative research approaches, the nature of this research is focussed entirely on human biology and disease, with the inherent challenge of how to overcome the variation and diversity of human beings in the pursuit of medical advances.

Biomedical interests for this cause are diverse and include chronic disease, infectious disease and human genetics, while developing alternative methods that replace animals.
