The Johns Hopkins Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing (CAAT) is now accepting proposals for the 2022 Reduction and Humane Education Awards. The deadline for receipt of submissions is Sunday, December 4, 2022.

The Reduction Award 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 Award 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.
