The Alternatives Research & Development Foundation (ARDF), which promotes alternatives to the use of laboratory animals in research, testing, and education, is currently soliciting research proposals for its 2017 Alternatives Research Grant Program. ARDF is offering up to $40,000 to support individual projects. Preference will be given to projects based in U.S. universities and research institutions using pathway-based “21st century toxicology” approaches. Proposals will be evaluated on their potential to significantly replace or reduce animal use and their scientific merit and feasibility. The application deadline for the grants is May 1. Learn more.
