Animal Free Contract Lab Founder joins FRAME Board

Jun 24 2020 Read 202 Times

The Founder and CEO of specialist animal-free contract testing laboratory XCellR8, Dr Carol Treasure has joined the Board of Trustees of Fund for the Replacement of Animals in Medical Experiments (FRAME), the scientific research charity. 

XCellR8 specialises in in vitro (animal-free) testing, providing safety and efficacy data for cosmetics and chemicals at its GLP accredited laboratory in Warrington and works with many well-known cosmetics companies such as Lush and The Body Shop along with global ingredient suppliers. 

FRAME is committed to replacing the use of animals in scientific experiments and is dedicated to the development of new and scientifically valid methods that will replace the need for laboratory animals in medical and scientific research, education, and testing.  Its Board of Trustees provides strategic direction and governance and works alongside the charity’s team that is led by CEO Celean Camp. 

Dr Treasure founded XCellR8 in 2008 to deliver entirely animal and animal-product free regulatory safety tests, replacing traditional tests with scientifically and ethically advanced methods. After completing her Physiology & Pharmacology degree at Sheffield, she undertook her PhD in the FRAME laboratory at the University of Nottingham. 

As a leading voice on the replacement of animal testing, as she said: “I am passionate about the vision of creating a more ethical testing industry, without animal testing and animal components and accelerating the shift to scientifically advanced methods.  

“Clearly, there is much common ground for my work and FRAME’s purpose and vision. Our aims and objectives are very much aligned as we both strive for the replacement of animal testing in medical and scientific research and the use of scientifically and ethically advanced approaches.”
