CAAT has the following 2 membership opportunities for Corporations, Foundations and Organizations:
CAAT Advisory Board Membership: $60,000 per year for three years
The CAAT Advisory Board provides oversight and direction to CAAT’s director and staff. The Board is made up of representatives from industry, academia, the US and European regulatory communities, and the animal welfare community, all contributing their considerable breadth and depth of expertise. Advisory Board members have a voice in setting CAAT’s annual agenda by articulating each company’s priority as it relates to toxicity and product safety testing. A current list of CAAT Advisory Board members is available here.
The Advisory Board meets twice annually in Baltimore to review recent progress and to advise the Center on new initiatives. At its annual fall meeting, the Board also reviews applications to the CAAT research grant program, allowing members the opportunity to consider cutting-edge research and technology in its early stages of development. Every three years, the Advisory Board attends a multi-day retreat, held at a location outside of Baltimore, where members focus on specific issues of importance to CAAT and its sponsors, and map long-range plans for the Center. Advisory Board members are asked to identify new sources of income for the Center, and when appropriate, present at scientific meetings on behalf of CAAT, as well as to promote the Center publicly at a variety of other organizational and regulatory meetings.
Members of the CAAT Advisory Board are part of a unique network of individuals and organizational representatives working globally to address international issues regarding humane science and the development of the 3Rs. CAAT is based within the world-class setting of the Johns Hopkins University, and members have access to CAAT faculty members and other distinguished professors.
