Next Generation Humane Science Award

Applications are due no later than November 30, 2017. Please email completed applications and required information to caat@jhu.edu.

This award is available annually to young scientists to acknowledge and encourage researchers who focus on replacing animal experiments. The 2017 award will provide a prize of up to $9,000 recognizing the work of one young scientist, or may be shared among two or more young scientists. 

Qualification Criteria

The work must be focused on the replacement of animals used in experimentation and exhibit excellence of research outcome as demonstrated by publications and presentations at scientific meetings. The review committee will also take into account:

  • The significance of the potential to replace animal experiments
  • Inspiration to others (fellow students, members of the research group) and outreach to wider audiences
  • The potential for the replacement methodologies to be used in a regulatory context

2017 Eligibility Criteria

  • The candidate must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States working at a US-based institution.
  • The candidate should not have received a PhD or similar degree earlier than 2012.
  • Current and former employees (or their family members) of the Center of Alternatives to Animal Testing at Johns Hopkins University may not apply.
