Animal research

The purpose of our animal research policy (PDF document, 134KB) is to provide a clear statement about the University’s position in relation to the use of animals in research and clarify the responsibilities of those who involve animals in University activities and the key University roles in overseeing these activities.

The policy applies to all staff, students and person undertaking research that involves animals, with the intention of publishing their work under the address of the University of Manchester. The policy divides the use of animals in research into 4 categories A, B, C and D and defines the ethical review requirements for each.
