Background

 

Ending Animal Testing

 
Despite some successful and popular campaigns, animal testing still takes place.

Animal testing is both inhumane and unscientific and the Prize aims to speed the introduction of non-animal testing, particularly in toxicity testing for consumer products and ingredients.

Supporting Alternatives

 
Animal testing is now widely acknowledged to be highly questionable, both scientifically and ethically, with regard to prediction of human safety and disease.

Adverse Outcome Pathways and 21st Century Toxicology offer new and better approaches to safety testing.
