Grants in Laboratory Animal Medicine

Funding Agency:
American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine Foundation

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. The Foundation will fund studies in the following five laboratory animal research subjects:

  1. Analgesia/anesthesia
  2. Behavior/well-being
  3. Diagnostics/diseases
  4. Husbandry
  5. Refinement of animal models [Note: Emphasis is on Russell & Birch 3R's - reduction, refinement, replacement - not on new research model development.]

Deadline for letter of intent: Dec. 1, 2023
