Call for Proposals for CAAT 2019 Science-Based Refinement Awards


The Johns Hopkins Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing (CAAT) is now accepting proposals for the 2019 Science-Based Refinement Awards.

A new priority of the CAAT Refinement Program is to help fund systematic reviews of frequently used and/or severe animal models to either refine them – if proven valid – or, when they are not representative for the intended purpose (e.g., to model a specific human malady), to demonstrate their weaknesses in an unbiased manner.

CAAT continues to fund non-invasive animal research projects to enhance the housing, handling, and/or experimental procedures for laboratory animals or that can reduce animal use. Hence, the small grants are intended for those who work hands-on with animals, such as animal welfare scientists, veterinarians, and animal care technicians, as well as for researchers who conduct systematic reviews and meta-analyses of animal studies.
