FRAME appoints new trustee

Andrew BennettDr Andrew Bennett, Director of the FRAME Alternatives Laboratory (FAL), has been appointed a FRAME Trustee.


Dr Bennett graduated from the University of Nottingham in 1987 with a BSc in biochemistry and genetics and went on to complete a biotechnology PhD at Cranfield University in 1991.


In 1992 he began a MAFF-funded study of the effects of dietary fat and carbohydrate on metabolic gene expression in rodent models.  In 1996 he was appointed lecturer in biochemistry at the University of Nottingham and then became associate professor in 2003.


His continuing work led him to realise the pressing need for the use of human subjects and human derived cell cultures because of the very different ways in which rodent and human metabolic gene expression is regulated.


As a result of his interest in finding human-based alternative models he was appointed Director of the FAL in 2006, where he and colleagues continue to work on primary human cell culture.


Chairman of the FRAME Trustees Prof Michael Balls said: “We are all very pleased that Andrew has accepted our invitation to be a Trustee.”
