Meet Our Scientific Advisory Panel
Animal Free Research UK’s Scientific Advisory Panel intend to drive forward our strategic vision of funding novel non-animal medical methodologies that are human-relevant, robust and remove animals from research laboratories for good.
The panel facilitate the charity funding more innovative, interdisciplinary and translational animal free research by improving the accuracy of application ranking, increasing the consistency of review, ensuring unbiased processes, increasing the speed of decisions, and reducing burden while offering appropriate recognition and incentives for peer reviewers.
Our Scientific Advisory Panel brings together a diverse range of scientific expertise and knowledge.
“The opportunity to work with Animal Free Research UK is a fantastic one! Not only do I get to help ongoing and future advantageous alternative approaches towards animal experiments, but to support early career researchers progress within this exciting, constantly expanding field of research.”
“I am delighted to work with Animal Free Research UK to ensure that we fund cutting edge research of direct relevance to human diseases, which can be more readily translated to the clinic.”
“Now is a unique, transformative time in preclinical testing for drug development. The science and drive for improved human-relevant models never been so strong, especially since the recent implementation of the FDA Modernisation act 2.0. I am honoured to support Animal Free Research UK to find new approaches to advance human medicine. Animal Free Research UK supports exceptional science for the benefit of society.”
“It is about time we stop curing cancer in animals, and we start finding how to do it in humans. Animal Free Research UK is a charity that supports shaping a world where human-relevant basic research is possible. Being a member of its Scientific Advisory Panel means that now I will be able to facilitate young scientists that would like to pursue animal free research in their career.”
“As someone who is strongly committed to developing animal free models of human disease, I strongly support the goals of Animal Free Research UK and am delighted to be working with them as Chair of their Scientific Advisory Panel.”
“I am delighted to be part of the Animal Free Research UK Scientific Advisory Panel. There are outstanding scientific and ethical reasons to move to animal free research. We need to reduce the time and money we put into misleading animal studies.”
“I am delighted to join Animal Free Research UK’s Scientific Advisory Panel. Having worked with human tissues for most of my career there is no better model for studying human disease and I look forward to encouraging early career researchers to adopt these in their research.”
“Scientific advance is propelling the preclinical toolbox in drug development towards change. I am pleased to support Animal Free Research UK in the push for the adoption of New Approach Methods for drug development. Having worked at CN Bio, in the development of MPS/Organ-on-chip technology for preclinical testing, I will lean on my experiences to provide value as a member of the Scientific Advisory Panel.”
"As a scientist first and foremost, the use of human relevant models and not animals. to study human diseases and potentially treatments seem logical and appropriate. I welcome the opportunity to support such a progressive organisation as AFRUK in promoting the development and use of animal free science in UK biomedical research.”
