Animal Ethics Committees use both the 3Rs and Harm/Benefit Analysis as cornerstones for welfare and ethical discussions. In our evolving understanding of animals and moral status, they may not be enough. The gap between these cornerstones can be bridged by principles of animal ethics.  This presentation will discuss the (Beauchamp/DeGrazia) principles in the context of two main challenges for translational research.  The first challenge is tied to societal benefit to the work, with the second being what is the welfare cost to the animals. Three principles for each challenge will be presented.  These principles go a long way in filling the gaps and also allow for the engagement of many stakeholders in the discussion of animals in research.
