Description In order to meet the needs of industry and government agencies, CAAT has developed a new academic research training program here at Johns Hopkins University. It is called CAAT Scholars. The CAAT Scholars program is unique in that post-doctoral fellows will work in selected laboratories throughout the University and will focus on developing methods that are mechanistically based – translational toxicology. The core curriculum consists of the successful completion of four courses that will address critical issues in humane sciences, examine the 3Rs in biomedical research, enhance knowledge about experimental design and analysis, and study the translational and policy implications of humane sciences.
