Leicester study offers an opportunity to reduce the number of animals used in stroke research led by Claire Gibson's research group, supported by the Division of Biomedical Services.

A study by our University, recently published in Disease Models & Mechanisms, describes a new approach for inducing stroke in mice that reduces variability in the experimental model. The work, funded by an NC3Rs pilot study grant to researchers at the University of Leicester, offers an opportunity to reduce the number of animals used in stroke research.
