Learning to understand cancer, which is an extremely complex and diverse disease involving the entire body, requires research involving living animals – which, in our institute, are rodents.
We want to be open and transparent about our research involving living animals, and we conduct our research in the most responsible manner, with great care for the wellbeing of our animals. A commitment to reduce, refine and replace animal experiments, wherever possible, underpins all our work.
In 2021, we co-launched and signed the Dutch Transparency Agreement on Animal Testing.
