About The Prize

photoThe Lush Prize rewards initiatives across science and campaigning that work to end or replace animal testing, particularly in the area of toxicology research.

Now in our seventh year, we have awarded £1.86 million in prizes, aiming to bring forward the day when safety testing takes place without the use of animals.

We seek to reward those working on replacing, rather than reducing or refining animal experiments.
