Louis D. Hyndman Sr. Lecture and Awards
Dr Robert Hudson, Professor of Renewable Resources, was recognized for his work developing codes of handling for domestically raised wildlife. Hudson's key area of research involves discovering new methods of assessing and ranking stress in domesticated wildlife and developing new husbandry practices to reduce it. Elaine Moase, the technician who manages the day-to-day research for Dr. Theresa Allen's laboratory in the Department of Pharmacology, was also honoured. A veteran of eight years in Dr. Allen's lab, Moase is responsible for several hundred laboratory mice annually which are used in several fields of medical research for the large, international research group.
Presented annually, the Louis D. Hyndman Sr. Lecture and Awards were established in 1994 by the University of Alberta Animal Policy and Welfare Committee with a bequest from Louis D. Hyndman Sr. These events commemorate Hyndman's lifelong concern for animal welfare and are presented for significant contributions to the welfare of animals used in research and teaching at the University of Alberta.
Two awards are given annually, one to a scientist and the other to a technician, to recognize individuals who have introduced improvements in the welfare of animals in their care or who have effectively reduced or replaced the use of animals in their work.
