New methods based on human biology are transforming our ability to understand disease and develop new medicines. There is now a golden opportunity to transition science funding away from animal research, towards support for human relevant, non-animal biomedical research.
Please would you write to the Prime Minister to ask him to expedite strategic redirection of funding and regulatory engagement with human relevant new approach methodologies (NAMs) to revitalise the life sciences for the immediate benefit of human health and the economy.

Encouraging signs were seen in Europe towards […]
