Launch of The Alliance for Human Relevant Science

The Alliance for Human Relevant Science is a new initiative, established to address an urgent need to drive recognition and acceptance of human based methods of safety (toxicity) testing and research.

Launched at the House of Commons in February and highlighted in a report in the latest issue of ATLA (Alternatives to Laboratory Animals) the Alliance will act as a centre of expertise. Its five founder organisations, Safer Medicines Trust, Animal-Free Research (formerly Dr Hadwen Trust), Kirkstall Ltd., Cyprotex and CN Bio Innovations welcomes new member organisations, to collaborate and drive the promotion of advanced methods in human-relevant scientific research and away from unreliable animal based methods, to improve patient safety.
