IIVS Receives First Mark Twain Ethical Science Award for Successes In Replacing Animals for Chemical and Product Safety Testing
Date:6/30/2010

sing number of scientists have found that the use of human artificial tissue constructs for product safety testing can provide much more accurate assessments of the potential risk to humans than testing in animals.

IIVS has worked for over thirteen years to advance the field of in vitro alternatives. The Mark Twain Ethical Science Award provides a clear demonstration of the impact of its work.
