The Lush Training Prize aims to reward individuals and organizations involved in training researchers in non-animal methods. The training prize recognizes that many scientists involved in chemicals testing are not aware of the range of non-animal methods available or trained in using them. Establishing training programs around the world makes a huge difference to the field. The prize wishes therefore to reward individuals, teams, or organizations who have excelled in this field. The three groups on the short list are:
Institute of In Vitro Sciences
The International QSAR Foundation
The winner will be announced October 15.
