Grants for Projects That Will Significantly Reduce or Replace Lab Animal Testing

From The Foundation Center...

Deadline: March 30, 2010

Alternatives Research & Development Foundation Seeks Proposals for Non-Animal Biomedical Research Methods

The mission of the Alternatives Research & Development Foundation is to fund and promote the development, validation, and adoption of non-animal methods in biomedical research, product testing, and education.

The foundation's 2010 Alternatives Research Grant Program offers opportunities for scientists who have interest and expertise in alternatives research.

Up to $40,000 in total funding is available to support individual projects. Proposals are judged primarily on the basis of the extent to which the project will significantly reduce or replace laboratory animals, and scientific merit and feasibility.

Grants from the foundation are made only to individuals affiliated with a nonprofit tax-exempt institution, organization, or foreign equivalent.
