Description The level of pain or distress experienced by animals used in experiments in the UK depends on the nature of the research and is classified as ‘mild’, ‘moderate’ or ‘severe’. Any level of suffering is a concern, but ending severe suffering is a top priority for us. During 2014 we further progressed our groundbreaking initiative which involves working with the scientific community to promote innovative and challenging approaches towards ending severe suffering. There are currently two parallel activities within this project.
