Supporting Research Ethics Committees’ (RECs) to implement good practice in research involving animal use 

Our company director Dr Nikki Osborne has this week published a guest blog – 3 important things Research Ethics Committee (REC) members need to know about research involving animal use.

We are proud of the role Nikki fulfills as a UKRIO volunteer advisor on animal use in research. This role utilises her experience of conducting and ethically reviewing research projects requiring the licensed and non-licensed use of animals.

How can we help?

Responsible Research in Practice provides RECs, AWERBs and scientific organisations with a range of consultancy and training services.

  • Consultancy services: we work with clients to develop bespoke policies, procedures and forms to implement good practice and meet research funders expectations. We also offer a review service to provide expert case by case advice on research projects involving the licensed and unlicensed use of animals. Aspects reviewed include: implementation of the 3Rs; animal welfare; reproducibility/translation value; reporting in accordance with the ARRIVE guidelines; compliance with research funders expectations and/or good practice standards.
  • Training services: we provide tailored training workshops for REC and AWERB members to support them to keep up to date with and implement good practice in this area.
