The Medical Advances Without Animals Trust (MAWA)

The aim of The Medical Advances Without Animals Trust (MAWA) is to advance medical science and improve human health and therapeutic interventions without using animals or animal products for biomedical research. MAWA works in partnership with The Australian National University (ANU). MAWA provides grant and scholarship funding to universities and research institutions to facilitate the development and utilisation of alternative methods to replace the use of animals in fundamental biomedical research. It is expected that by funding replacement research and training scientists in alternative techniques the reliance on the use of animals will be decreased. MAWA also encourages, through promotion and education, the wider adoption of such methods.
