The Humane Society of the United States solicits nominations for the 2017 Russell and Burch Award

The Humane Society of the United States welcomes nominations of scientists who have made outstanding contributions to the advancement of alternative methods in the areas of research, testing, or higher education for the Russell and Burch Award. Alternative methods—also known as the Three Rs—are methods that can replace or reduce the use of animals, or refine procedures so that animals experience less pain or suffering.

The award is named in honor of William Russell and Rex Burch, the scientists who formulated the Three Rs approach of replacement, reduction and refinement. The Award recognizes those who have played an important role in limiting the use and suffering of animals in laboratories.
