Statement on research in Kenya


A stroke research project started prior to the publication of the latest guidance ‘Responsibility in the use of animals in Bioscience Research’ in April 2013.

While the guidance has been developed and applies to the external funders of animal research and not to individual universities, Newcastle University has taken the decision to review our own policies and bring them in line with our external funding partners.

We are committed to excellent standards of animal welfare and to the principles of the ‘3Rs’ in our medical research. This is why we will be stopping the research in Kenya and reviewing all our overseas research involving animals.
