Lush Prize conference: Is One R the new Three Rs?


This year’s Lush Prize conference, in London on Friday 14 November, will focus on the impact of 21st century toxicology ideas on replacing animal testing.

Does the consensus building around 21st Century Toxicology – a wholly replacement model (‘1R’) – mean that the 3Rs framework (refinement, reduction, replacement) is an idea that has had its day?

Or does a significant pathway-based understanding remain so distant, that 3Rs will retain a relevance for many years to come?

Sessions and Expert Speakers

The conference includes a number of presentations and Q&A sessions, with expert speakers on the international progress and challenges in replacing animal testing.

Speakers include:

Dr. Thomas Hartung: Centre for Alternatives to Animal Testing, John Hopkins University
Prof. Lizabeth Knudsen: Professor of Toxicology, University of Copenhagen
Prof. Horst Spielmann: Faculty of Biology, Chemistry, Pharmacy, Freie Universitat Berlin (TBC)
Troy Seidle: Humane Society International, Canada
Prof. Thales Tréz: Institute of Science and Technology, Brazil
Borami Seo: Korea Animal Rights Advocates

Attendees are also invited to visit stands throughout the day to learn about Lush Prize’s 2014 winning projects.
