Journalism award


An article reporting on Covid-19 research at the Biomedical Primate Research Centre, The Netherlands, has won the Silver Award in the AAAS Kavli Science Journalism Awards.


In the feature article in the Dutch publication, De Volkskrant, reporter Maartje Bakker followed two rhesus monkeys through Covid-19 vaccine testing, with interviews from researchers, caregivers, and those opposed to animal research.


Judges praised her balanced and fair approach to the story, with Sarah Zielinski, editor of Science News for Students, saying she “gained incredible access to obtain this moving story about animals sacrificed in the quest for Covid-19 vaccines.”

In another science award, the Danish 3Rs-Centre 3Rs prize was awarded to Professor Anne Marie Vinggaard for her commitment to promotion of animal-free methods in molecular toxicology.
