Biography

Dr Hudson-Shore is a Research Fellow at the University of Nottingham and member of the Centre for Applied Bioethics (CAB). She is currently undertaking research related activities to support the delivery of the EU H2020 VetBioNet project, in particular Work Package 4: Ethical standards and social impact of VetBioNet research work.

Michelle has over 14 years of experience working in the field of alternatives to animal experiments. In her previous role as Scientific Programme Manager at FRAME, she developed and coordinated 11 Training Schools in Experimental Design. Michelle has a broad range of expertise in the 3Rs, qualitative and quantitative research methods and animal welfare and ethics. She has delivered numerous lectures, presentations and posters in this area and has many years of experience in interpreting animal experimentation legislation and statistics and in consulting with related government agencies regarding the implementation and dissemination of 3Rs initiatives.

Selected Publications

Dr Hudson-Shore has a wide range of expertise in the 3Rs, qualitative and quantitative research methods and animal welfare and ethics. She has delivered numerous lectures, seminars, presentations and posters in these areas.

Dr Hudson-Shore has supervised interns and undergraduate students, including an Erasmus exchange student.

More broadly she is also interested in developing and facilitating training in 3Rs, ethics, implementation of animal research legislation and the social impact of research both for animal related studies and scientific research more generally.

Current Research

Currently undertaking research related activities to support the delivery of the EU H2020 VetBioNet project, in particular Work Package 4: Ethical standards and social impact of VetBioNet research work. Main duties involve developing resources for the network members and wider scientific community, including an events calendar, 3Rs centre and tools database and a European Animal Experimentation Legislation database. Additional tasks include planning a training event, designing an empirical research project, and writing news and information items for dissemination to the network via the VetBioNet website and newsletter. The role also requires the provision of a summary update on the implementation of EU Directive 2010/63/EU and signposting of any useful resources and/or information to assist with understanding, applying and complying with the regulations across Europe.

Past Research

Dr Hudson Shore gained her PhD at the University of Nottingham in 2015. Her PhD examined the social dynamics involved in the animal experimentation debate, in particular the lack of progress in replacing the use of primates in biomedical research. The study involved a multi-method approach and insights from science and technology studies to better understand the animal research controversy. The findings gave her insight in to how the social dynamics of science play a critical role in explaining why the apparent stalemate in replacing laboratory primates persists and how these dynamics can help to understand how to overcome it.
