We encourage the investigation of in vitro approaches to evaluating cellular and target organ toxicity. Some examples are: developing new cell culture systems, applying current testing methodology to human cells/cell lines, and designing new, mechanistic, state of the art methods that may utilize cultured cells, computer technology (e.g. structure activity relationships), or any other system applicable to toxicity/efficacy evaluation. At the present time, CAAT does not fund projects relating to carcinogenically or mutagenicity, or those not focused on developing testing strategies. The maximum grant award for this period will be $20,000.
Applications must be placed on a CAAT Preproposal Abstract Form (98-99). These forms are available in January, 1998 from Gloria Mahlstedt at CAAT, 111 Marketplace, Suite 840, Baltimore, MD 21202-6709, Tel. (410)223-1693, Fax (410)223-1603, E-Mail firstname.lastname@example.org
