Tout comme la Déclaration d’Helsinki qui a durablement modifié le paysage éthique de la recherche clinique humaine, la Déclaration de Bâle s’est donné pour objectif de rassembler les acteurs de la communauté scientifique afin de poursuivre et de mettre en oeuvre des principes éthiques tel celui des 3R partout où des animaux sont utilisés. Par ailleurs, elle s’engage pour une plus grande confiance, ainsi qu’une meilleure transparence et une meilleure communication des activités concernant le délicat sujet de l’expérimentation animale. Fondée le 5 octobre 2011, la Société de la Déclaration de Bâle met tout en oeuvre pour promouvoir la Déclaration de Bâle. voir galerie de photos...

BASEL DECLARATION AWARD FOR EDUCATION IN ANIMAL RESEARCH 

Young Moscovite researcher receives this year's «Basel Declaration Award for Education in Animal Research».

The Basel Declaration presented the Award for Education in Animal Research for the third consecutive year. The award winner, Vladimir Sergeevich Popov from the Moscow State University, will attend a 1-week course at Zürich University for research with animals according to the rules of the 3Rs (Replace, Reduce, Refine). As head of the animal research laboratory at the Moscow State University, Popov has been given the task of adapting experimental animal research as well as student training to European standards.

Vladimir Sergeevich Popov is head of the animal research laboratory at the Moscow State University, where he teaches animal research to the students. He is active in several organizations, which strive to reach European standards in the Russian animal research laboratories and pay particular attention to the wellbeing of the animals.

Popov is an ideal prizewinner in the opinion of the Basel Declaration Society, as he is still young and has a wide circle of influence. He holds a key position, which permits him to implement effectively the 3Rs (Replace, Reduce, Refine) in Russian animal research laboratories. This is of the utmost concern to the Basel Declaration Society.

The use of animals in biomedical research is unfortunately still essential. However, those animals used in research should suffer as little pain and discomfort as possible. The number of animals used should be confined to the absolute minimum necessary for the targeted aquisition of scientific knowledge. The highest ethical principles of the 3Rs (Replace, Reduce, Refine) are to be applied worldwide. This will enable laboratory animals to live an animal-friendly life and improve considerably the quality of scientific experiments.
