Quality and integrity
Leiden University stands for high quality research. Integrity and reliability in the way we conduct research are core beliefs in Leiden.
Work for third parties
Work for third parties demonstrates the breadth of our involvement in society. Given the importance of having complete transparency regarding work carried out for third parties, every member of staff is therefore obliged to notify us of any such work that they carry out. These subsidiary activities are indicated on the profile pages of staff on the University website.
Responsible animal research
Currently, research is not yet 100 per cent free of animal testing since there are certain types of research that cannot be replaced by studies that do not involve animals. Leiden University observes the strictest regulations for any biological, medical and biomedical research carried out by our researchers out using animal testing.
