UK: LUSH Prize 2014 awarded

In November the LUSH Prize was awarded to twelve winners from ten countries at a ceremony at the Royal Institute of Brit­ish Architects in London. The prize money totaled £250,000 (€300,000).

 

The award ceremony was preceded by a conference entitled “Is One R the new Three Rs? Does the consensus building around 21st Century Toxicology – a wholly replacement model (‘1R’) – mean that the 3Rs framework (refinement, reduction, replacement) is an idea that has had its day? Or does a signifi­cant pathway-based understanding remain so distant, that 3Rs will retain a relevance for many years to come?” Slides from the presentations are posted online at http://www.lushprize.org/2014-prize/lush-prize-conference-2014/.
