The Bennet Cohen Award was created to recognize an individual that have acheived prominence in promoting and advancing the “three Rs” of reduction, refinement and replacement in the use of laboratory animals in research, teaching and testing, first described in 1959 by Russell and Burch.
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.
