Our Summer School returned a triumphant success after a forced virtual event last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. This summer saw 16 early career scientists from leading universities work on projects to find treatments for human diseases using cutting-edge, humane research.
A new YouGov survey has found that 77% of Conservative Party members would support the Government helping UK scientists replace animal experiments in medical research with new technologies such as computer modelling and organ-on-a-chip.
World-class pioneer of biomedical research and innovation, Dr Don Ingber, is the special guest on the next edition of the Animal Free Labcast, aired from Wednesday August 10, 2022.
2021 was a tough year for many, but there was also lots to feel hopeful about as highlighted in our inspiring new Year In Review report. Thanks to our brilliant supporters, scientists and partners, Animal Free Research UK made both great and incremental change towards a kinder science for people and animals.
Across two days in Birmingham, we discussed our collective desire to benefit human health by pioneering, perfecting and transitioning to modern animal free medical research. We heard from the best in our field – from veterans and early career scientists alike.
Don Ingber is a world class pioneer. In 2010, he developed a lung-on-a-chip – the first of its kind – and since then has continued to lead the field by developing numerous other organ chip models. His work has been pivotal to numerous breakthroughs, enabling technologies that are revolutionising research and serving as a solid platform for progress towards understanding human biology and disease.
