The Humane Research Trust is a registered charity that HELPS PEOPLE and SAVES ANIMALS.

The Trust raises the necessary finance to fund and promote pioneering medical research into human disease WITHOUT the use of animals or animal tissue. The aim is to eliminate the need for animals in human medical research.

The Humane Research Trust works WITH scientists, funding a wide range of research at a number of UK hospitals and universities.

The Trust also funds lectureships and studentships, which help to spread the message that humane research is the cost effective way to promote human health, quickly and with a clear conscience.

The Humane Research Trust, with its many supporters and scientific partners, will continue the work started, over thirty years ago, by its predecessor the Lawson Tait Trust to help people and save animals.
