The Dr Hadwen Trust (DHT) has been successfully shortlisted for an international training award offered by Lush. DHT is now widely recognised as one of the world’s leading exponents of non-animal research and is consulted internationally for its expertise in replacement research methods by scientists, governments, education, animal welfare organisations and industry.
The Lush Prize will be presented on 15th November 2012 in London. It has been devised to promote an end to the use of animals in product safety testing. DHT is nominated in the Training Prize category which serves to highlight the range of non-animal research methods available globally. It views the establishment of training programmes around the world as key to increasing knowledge and understanding in the field.
Kailah Eglington, Chief Executive of the Dr Hadwen Trust, said:
“To be recognised as a contender for this well-respected, international award is a great achievement. It offers us some much-valued support in our fight to end animal experiments in biomedical research and testing. If we are successful, the prize will enable us to offer further, significant financial support to encourage the use of alternative research techniques.”
