3Rs award UK

A Cambridge scientist has been awarded a prestigious 3Rs prize for their innovative methods in basic research.

The 3Rs Prize, sponsored by GSK, is awarded annually by the NC3Rs to recognise work that has had a major impact on the replacement, reduction and refinement of the use of animals in research.

Prizewinner Marta Shahbazi, from the University of Cambridge, UK, created 3D cultures of human and mouse embryonic stem cells that mimic the development of embryos after implantation.

This model can provide an opportunity to replace and reduce the use of live mice in some developmental biology studies.
