Science-Based Refinement Awards.

CAAT's Science-Based Refinement Awards provide funding for strictly non-invasive research that helps to refine the housing, handling, and/or experimental situations for laboratory animals or that has the potential to reduce the number of animal subjects used, e.g., by critically appraising animal models and by enhancing transparency in animal experimentation. For 2019, two awards for $5,000 were presented to:

--Constanta Carvalho, Centro de Filosofia das Ciencias da Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal for Citation analysis on the contribution of rat models to our current understanding of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)

--Steven Chamuleau, Department of Cardiology, UMC Utrecht, The Netherlands for Promoting transparency in preclinical research through the establishment of a preregistration platform for animal studies
