Description The Dr Hadwen Trust (DHT) is the UK’s leading non-animal medical research charity. We fund and promote the development of techniques and procedures to replace the use of animals in biomedical research. To achieve our aim, the DHT supports and assists scientists to implement existing techniques and develop new ones which are more human-relevant and will replace animal experiments. We award grants to scientists in universities, hospitals and research organisations following a rigorous and independent peer-reviewed selection procedure. Only those projects with the highest scientific calibre and the best potential for the replacement of animals will be awarded funding.
