The Johns Hopkins Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing (CAAT) is a small, non-profit center. As part of the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health, we are dedicated to improving health for both people and animals. (In March 2000, U.S. News & World Report ranked Johns Hopkins #1 among all schools of public health.)

We promote humane science by supporting the creation, development, validation, and use of alternatives to animals in research, product safety testing, and education. We seek to effect change by working with scientists in industry, government, and academia to find new ways to replace animals with non-animal methods, reduce the numbers of animals necessary, or refine methods to make them less painful or stressful to the animals involved.
