Johns Hopkins Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing (CAAT)

The Johns Hopkins Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing (CAAT) has worked with scientists since 1981 to find new methods to replace the use of laboratory animals in experiments, reduce the number of animals tested, and refine necessary tests to eliminate pain and distress. CAAT is an academic, science-based center affiliated with the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health. It is based on the belief that the best science is humane science. The programs seek to provide a better, safer, more humane future for people and animals. CAAT provides a variety of resources, including grants for scientists developing non-animal methods, workshops on alternative methods, books, newsletters, and other publications. CAAT also manages Altweb, an international online clearinghouse of alternatives news and resources. CAAT's approach to toxicology follows the 3Rs principle to pursue alternative toxicological methods that reduce, refine and replace the use of laboratory animals in toxicological research. The principle of the 3Rs was first proposed by William Russell and Rex Burch in 1959. In their book "The Principles of Humane Experimental Technique," they classified humane techniques under the headings refinement, reduction, and replacement, commonly known now as the 3Rs. *
