LUSH prize for in vitro research, training, advocacy

Kate Willett, HSUS

There is just one month left to nominate for Lush Prize 2016, the biggest annual prize fund supporting the complete replacement of animal testing, across science, campaigns and lobbying, with a focus on toxicology / safety testing.

Nominations close at midnight on 24th July (wherever you are in the world!) so don’t delay in getting your submission to us via our website www.lushprize.org.

The total prize money of £250,000 (€313,000 / US$358,000) is divided across five categories: ScienceTrainingYoung ResearcherPublic AwarenessLobbying.

We are delighted to announce that this year we are extending support to young scientists across Asia and the Americas, to ensure that those wanting to pursue careers in non-animal science (but may lack the support of their institutions or have difficulty accessing technologies) can do so.

With the support of Lush Cosmetics in North America and South Korea we can support up to five more young researchers in the Americas and five more in Asia (£10,000 each) as well as the usual five across the rest of the world. Nominations are made in the usual way via our website (which is now available in 11 languages).
