This document outlines the projects granted under the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 during 2015 with a primary purpose of translational and applied research: non-regulatory toxicology and ecotoxicology.
The following projects were granted:
- zebrafish: an alternative model for drug safety and efficacy (epilepsy, toxicology, diabetes, pharmacology)
- investigative and enabling safety assessment studies (safety, toxicity, drug discovery/development)
- assessing the hazards of nanomaterials (nanomaterial, toxicity, safety, mechanism, inflammation)
- regulatory aquatic ecotoxicology testing (aquatic, ecotoxicology, fish, freshwater)
