Pro-Test Success at Freshers' Fair
Well over 700 individuals signed their support to Animal Research and th new Oxford Biomedical Facility at Freshers' Fair over 3 days, making Pro-Test one of the most successful stalls at the event. Pro-test would like to thank everyone who signed, and the hundreds who added that they would like to get involved in the campaign. It was pleasing to see the odd double take, with people walking past before stopping with "...wait - did you say FOR animal research - give me a pen".
The mass signups suggest a strong turnout to come at February's march - and we look forward to seeing all those who signed, and more, at the rally. Generally it was great to see so much positivity surrounding our presence at Freshers' Fair.

In awarding the prize the Nobel committee noted that "This year's Nobel Laureates have made a series of ground-breaking discoveries concerning embryonic stem cells and DNA recombination in mammals. Their discoveries led to the creation of an immensely powerful technology referred to as gene targeting in mice. It is now being applied to virtually all areas of biomedicine – from basic research to the development of new therapies."
This award recognizes both the value the scientific community currently places on gene targeting and the immense future potential of the technology.
More details about this award can be found in the Nobel Prize press
