As part of a pioneering strategic collaboration between the Blizard Institute and the Dr Hadwen Trust (DHT), applications are invited for the post of Chair in Animal Replacement Science.
During 2014-2017, the Dr Hadwen Trust will fund a three-year programme at the Glasgow Caledonian University Skin Research Tissue Bank (STB) to provide human skin tissue and cells that can be used for multiple studies related to diabetes.
We are delighted to announce that Emily Hopkin, 25, from Pontardawe, Swansea, will be attending the British Science Festival in September, having been selected as our ‘Geek4aWeek’.

Artificial micro-humans may replace animals in lab tests
Scientists are creating artificial micro-humans that will eliminate the need for using animals in laboratory testing.
The artificial human machines, each the size of a microchip, will simulate the response of humans to substances inhaled, absorbed in the gut or circulated through the bloodstream.
