The Johns Hopkins Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing (CAAT) is soliciting projects that focus on the implementation of the NAS Report: Toxicity Testing in the 21st Century: A Vision and a Strategy in the following areas:
- Proposals Relating to Toxicology: Maximum grant amount is $25,000 per year. Projects should be developed to provide understanding at a mechanistic level using computational systems biology approaches focused on in vitro responses to toxicants in human cells. Consideration should be given to the translation of this new method to evaluate/predict health outcomes.
- Proposals Relating to Developmental Immunotoxicology: Maximum grant amount is $50,000 per year. These studies can either be in vitro or involve embryonic stem cells. Whole-animal, mammalian studies are not appropriate.
- Proposal Relating to Refinement: See Science-Based Animal Welfare Awards – funded separately.
