Description Established in 1993, the Alternatives Research & Development Foundation (ARDF) supports the development, validation, and adoption of non-animal methods in biomedical research, product testing, and education. The fundamental principle of ARDF is that the primary issue in animal experimentation is not the researchers nor the questions being asked, but rather the tools chosen to answer those questions. Focused on methods and models used in research, ARDF works constructively with partners in the science community to bring alternatives technology and compassion to modern laboratories and classrooms.
