The Mühlbock Award is the oldest and most prestigious recognition that ICLAS confers. It is named after a renowned scientist and one of the early fathers of ICLAS, Professor O.F.E. Mühlbock of the Netherlands. The Award has been previously conferred upon many distinguished scientists, including a Nobel laureate, all of whom supported the value of using high quality, genetically and microbiologically-defined laboratory animals in research.
