The CRO Outreach Working Group was formed to partner with CROs to strengthen our relationship and shared interest in further integrating the 3Rs principles into our efforts.

The 3Rs LG recognized that a significant percentage of animal research conducted on behalf of IQ Consortium members is contracted to business partners in the CRO industry. Early efforts are focused on engagement of CROs to explore shared approaches for implementing 3Rs principles, examining optimal approaches, and promoting opportunity for refinement of animal research across the field of drug discovery and development.
