In 2015 the Lush Prize awarded a record £450,000 in prizes to 18 outstanding winners from 9 countries.
The awards were presented at a gala ceremony in London – see photo galleries of the event.
In addition to £200,000 being shared by the winners of the lobbying, training, public awareness, science and young researcher awards, this year the judges decided to present our first ever Black Box awards, totalling £250,000, to winners involved in mapping the first ever ‘human toxicity pathway’.

We had a day of discussion on this subject with presentations from winners of the 2015 Lush Prize and a range of leading speakers from around the world, on the subject of ‘Adverse Outcome Pathways – What, How and Where Next?’.
