The Johns Hopkins Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing (CAAT) is now accepting proposals for the 2023 Reduction and Humane Education Grants.

The Reduction Grant focuses on research projects that help reduce animal use by identifying areas of research and testing where animal models lack reproducibility and translational value. Hence, the grant is intended for researchers who conduct systematic reviews, meta-analyses, or citation analyses of animal studies or similar work with the goal to reduce animal use in science.

The Humane Education Grant is given for the development of animal-free training resources for veterinary, medical or laboratory courses. The grant is intended for educators and training material developers with the goal to foster respect and compassion for animals.

To learn more and submit your application, please visit the CAAT website here.

The deadline for receipt of submissions is Wednesday, November 15, 2023. Applications should be submitted electronically to the Director of the Beyond Classical Refinement Program, Kathrin Herrmann, at
