UK: DHT awards summer studentships, announces conference
The Dr Hadwen Trust (DHT), the UK’s leading non-animal medical research charity will award seven Summer Studentships to early career scientists in 2014. The recipients of the awards will gain laboratory experience in developing techniques that will help replace the use of animals in research, and aims to embed the use and development of animal replacement methodologies into the minds of the next generation of research scientists. The projects cover animal-replacement research into Parkinson’s disease, liver cancer, muscle diseases, diabetes, tuberculosis, the blood-brain barrier and schizophrenia, see http://bit.ly/1np4Dh1.
The Summer Studentships form part of the DHT’s strategy to focus on education in 2014. The conference “Animal Replacement Science 2014: Improving relevance to human disease – challenges, innovations and applications” will be organised by the DHTand will take place on November 27 in London. Sponsors of the event include the Lush Prize.
Over the last 5 years the Dr Hadwen Trust has funded over £2.25 million worth of animal replacement research projects across the UK at student, PhD and post-doctoral level.
