Prize winners feature in ATLA Special Issue


Ethical Consumer have joined forces with Lush and the Fund for the Replacement of Animal Testing to release a special issue of the academic journal, Alternatives to Laboratory Animals.

The Journal will feature articles from the winners of the 2012 Lush Prize awards, as well as from some of the judges.

Articles include Lisbeth E. Knudsen's, 'Animal-free Toxicology: The Use of Human Tissue to Replace the Use of Animals' and Kelly A. BéruBé's, 'Medical Waste Tissues — Breathing Life back into Respiratory Research'.

Rob Harrison, Ethical Consumer editor and Lush Prize judge said “We hope this publication will help to promote efforts in academic research to develop and validate replacement alternatives for use in toxicology testing, as well as raise awareness about the Lush Prize and help academics to share information.”

The Journal articles are freely available on the ATLA website.


The 2014 Lush Prize opens for nominations on April 15th.
