Grants in Laboratory Animal Medicine
The Mission of the ACLAM Foundation is to expand the body of knowledge in the fields of laboratory Animal Science and Medicine through funding research grants. The ACLAM Foundation has developed a two-tiered system for competitive review of grant proposals. Submission of a letter of intent is followed by a request for a full grant proposal to selected applicants.
Deadline for letter of intent: Nov. 28, 2019
Areas of Interest
The Foundation will fund studies in the following five laboratory animal research subjects:
• Refinement of animal models [Note: Emphasis is on Russell & Birch 3R’s – reduction, refinement, replacement - not on new research model development.]
Grants are made to host institutions, not individual investigators or their department. Accordingly, full proposals must bear the signature of an official authorized to sign for the applicant institution. The principal investigator must hold a doctoral-level degree (DVM/VMD, MD, DDS, PhD or equivalent), with the one Husbandry research topic exception noted.
