In brief

In common with most medical research charities, we acknowledge that, despite developments in areas such as cell culture and computer modelling, there will be times when research still depends on the use of animals. Following guidance from the Association of Medical Research Charities and the Home Office, we will not fund animal research unless it is essential and there is no alternative.

Please refer to our Position Statement on the use of animals and stem cells in research for full details on Prostate Cancer UK's stance on these topics.
