The Johns Hopkins Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing (CAAT) is a small, non-profit center. As part of the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health, we are dedicated to improving health for both people and animals. (In March 2000, U.S. News & World Report ranked Johns Hopkins #1 among all schools of public health.)
We promote humane science by supporting the creation, development, validation, and use of alternatives to animals in research, product safety testing, and education. We seek to effect change by working with scientists in industry, government, and academia to find new ways to replace animals with non-animal methods, reduce the numbers of animals necessary, or refine methods to make them less painful or stressful to the animals involved.
Information about CAAT-Europe can be found here.
Information about the Transatlantic Think Tank of Toxicology (t4) can be found here.
We also have a website devoted to 3Rs and alternatives news and information—Altweb: The Global Clearinghouse for Information on Alternatives to Animal Testing.
And our official journal, ALTEX: Alternatives to Animal Experimentation, can be found here.
You can follow CAAT on Facebook and Twitter, too, or visit our YouTube channel.
