 Applications invited for grants in laboratory animal science

​Posted Jan. 3, 2018

Feb. 1 is the deadline to apply for a Grant for Laboratory Animal Science from the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science.

AALAS seeks applications for research projects that will promote the enhancement of scientific knowledge in laboratory animal health and welfare.

Since its inception in 2006, the GLAS program has awarded 62 research grants that have added new knowledge to the field of laboratory animal science. The grant categories are Standard Grants for up to $50,000 and Small Grants for up to $7,500. Program information, the application form, and an application tutorial are available at www.aalas.org/glas.

Because the mission of the AALAS Grants for Laboratory Animal Science Program includes promoting collaborative efforts by the AALAS membership within the broader scientific community, the principal investigator must be an AALAS member, but co-investigators do not have to be AALAS members. There are no geographic restrictions with regard to the investigators or the institution, so international submissions are welcomed.
