Queen Mary, University of London, has created a professorial chair in animal replacement science. The position is funded by the Dr Hadwen Trust, a charity that funds investigation into ways of replacing animals in research. According to the trust, the chair will "see the UK spearhead a collaborative global search for more ethical, human-relevant alternatives to animal testing". The professor will be based at Queen Mary's Blizard Institute, where researchers already are already working on developing in vitro models using human cells and tissue.
