Research and Development Activities Supporting Alternative Methods Development

ICCVAM member agencies work to promote the regulatory acceptance of new, scientifically valid toxicological tests that protect human and animal health and the environment while replacing, reducing, or refining animal tests. To achieve this goal, many ICCVAM member agencies engage in research activities that focus both on developing new test methods and exploring new technologies that may support future test method development. Effective translation of technological advances into new test methods should allow better protection of public health while addressing animal use and welfare concerns.
