Meet Our Trustees
“I am passionate about the use of all human in vitro models in medicine, particularly in the context of pre-clinical testing, and so I am delighted to be a trustee of Animal Free Research UK and to bring my experience and knowledge of all-human studies.”
“I am delighted to join this wonderful charity and to support their valuable work in replacing outdated, cruel and ineffective animal testing with cutting edge technologies and helping make Britain an inspiring world leader in ethical research. Life has changed in so many ways over the last few years – now is the time to seize the moment and make dramatic improvements in pioneering animal free research that benefits people and animals.”
“I remember how 40 years ago one had to hunt in health food stores to find shampoo that hadn’t been tested on animals. Since then it’s become a lot easier to obtain such products, but unfortunately cruel and unnecessary experiments on animals still continue. Therefore it is an honour to be on the board of Animal Free Research UK and make a contribution to ending these.”
With a diverse career spanning both the private and public sectors, Julia has been a self-employed bookkeeper since 2006 with clients in various fields including the charity sector.
“I am extremely proud and excited to be a Trustee for this amazing charity. Animal Free Research UK is taking positive, progressive and ground-breaking steps in the world of medicine. With more and more people questioning the validity of animal experiments, ethically, financially and scientifically, Animal Free Research UK is shaping the future of medical research.”
“Great advancements have been made in animal-free testing alternatives, and the use of ethical, human relevant technologies saves lives, money and time. I am thrilled to be able to contribute in pushing for positive change that benefits animals and people.”
“I am delighted to be a trustee of Animal Free Research UK. They are key in helping to drive the change away from the misleading use of animals in research for human disease, to human relevant methods. Ultimately this will be of benefit to my patients and animals alike”.
“I am excited to be working with Animal Free Research U.K. to accelerate the transition to human specific research and testing for the benefit of the three million animals who continue to suffer and die in U.K. laboratories every year but also for the health and wellbeing of non human animals and our environment. Change is urgently needed and the incredible scientists supported by this charity are our future.”
