CAAT-EU was founded as a joint venture between the University of Konstanz and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
Its activities will complement those of its sister organization, the Johns Hopkins Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing (CAAT) in Baltimore, USA. CAAT-EU will act as a communication platform for science, industry, and the regulatory authorities in Europe and as a central communication hub for transatlantic exchange.
As a transatlantic cooperation center, CAAT-EU will unite its activities in the field of alternatives and toxicology at the University of Konstanz and combine them strategically with the activities of CAAT-US. This transatlantic venture will promote the application and teaching of humane science, raise funds from industrial and private sponsors for this purpose, and participate in and/or coordinate EU funded projects.
Prof Balls’s speech will be entitled “Alternative methods—servant to two masters”.
Prof Balls is Emeritus Professor for Medical Cell Biology at the University of Nottingham.
