A spokesperson for The Lush Prize commented, “Kirkstall Ltd. has been awarded the training prize for their commitment to installing their passion and eagerness for replacing animal testing into the mind-sets of researchers worldwide. Their training workshops have shown to be are a very effective way of changing researchers’ perspectives on animal replacement and in vitro testing worldwide.”

“Having already reached over 600 scientists, we hope the recognition gained from this award along with the prize fund will help Kirkstall increase the reach and impact of their training efforts and future work towards the replacement of animal testing.”

Shortly after accepting the award, which comes with a £25,000 prize fund, Kirkstall CEO Dr. J.
