Congratulations to Laura Bray who is one of the recipients of the Lush Prize 2015 in the category Young Researchers Prize.

The Lush Prize is awarded to projects, organisations, institutions or individuals focussed on ending the use of animal testing or for research into non-animal tests, or promoting the use of non-animal tests.

The Young Researchers Prize in particular, offers PhD students and postdoctoral researchers specialising in alternative research, a bursary to help fund their future projects.

Laura has been honored for her proposed project which aims to provide three key developments to animal replacement in cancer research and patients:

• a toolbox for medical researchers to study cancer in vitro to identify new targets for therapeutic applications,

• a method for high throughput drug screening to accelerate clinical trials, and

• a model system to test patient samples, for the purpose of individualising their treatment program
