Description Juliana von Wendt Fund, founded in 1971, is a Finnish charity, which supports humane methods of scientific and medical research. The Fund awards yearly grants to Finnish researchers developing and applying non-animal methodology in a wide range of fields including toxicity testing, cancer research, surgery, antibody production, computer assisted drug modelling, tissue culture techniques, higher education etc. Methods replacing exceptionally harmful use of animals are prioritised, as well as projects, which are most relevant for human or animal welfare.
