IAVA was a winner of the 2016 Training Prize.. The group’s director, Dr Ramak Roshanaei, recently got in touch to tell us about “the tremendous impact on IAVA activities” that the £25,000 prize money has had.
Lush Prize was at the 21st European Congress on Alternatives to Animal Testing, and sponsored the session ‘3D Models and Multi Organ Chips (MOC), Human-Organ-Chips (HOC)’. Here is our diary of the event.
Every year we build a growing ‘family’ of Lush Prize winners who promote the Prize to colleagues, and this has led to a fantastic number of nominations this year from China, South Korea and Brazil in particular.
Lush Prize recently spoke at an important conference in China on alternatives to animal testing. As always, Lush Hong Kong team organised an excellent exhibition booth, engaging with delegates and provided further information on the Lush Prize.
Lush businesses in America and Asia are combining with Lush Prize to seek nominations for ten extra awards of £10,000 each for young scientists working on non-animal models in these parts of the world.
