Animal research case studies

Explore some case studies from our research involving animals at Sussex.

Examples of our case studies

In this section we have included some examples of research involving animals which have been undertaken at the University of Sussex.

There is one study which does not fall under the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act (1986) (also referred to as ASPA). This is an observational study, investigating whether or not African Elephants have culture. Although this study is not regulated in the same way as studies which fall under the Act, the AWERB aspires to undertake ethical review of all studies involving animals undertaken by staff or students at the University of Sussex.
