New paper published about the forced swim test in rats
Kathrin Herrmann, CAAT’s Beyond Classical Refinement Director, just published a paper with colleagues Carvalho, Marques & Knight asking is it Time to Abolish the Forced Swim Test in Rats for Depression Research? The forced swim test (FST) is a controversial rodent test that has been used for decades, mainly in depression studies. The severity of the procedure makes it ethically questionable and its validity has also been questioned. In this paper we contribute new data to this debate.

GRADUATE FELLOWSHIPS FOR ALTERNATIVES TO THE USE OF ANIMALS IN SCIENCE
The International Foundation for Ethical Research (IFER) is now accepting pre-proposal applications for 2022-2023 Graduate Fellowships.
Applications are due no later than 11:59 PM CST on Saturday, April 30, 2022.
IFER Graduate Fellowships are one-year grants for projects that support the development, acceptance and implementation of innovative scientific methodologies that advance science and refine, reduce or replace the use of animals in research, testing or education. Grants of $12,500 are typically awarded and are renewable annually for up to three years, depending on student progress and availability of funds.
IFER recognizes the value in directing financial resources away from animal models and toward the development of human-relevant, non-animal models, as such resources pay higher dividends for human health when used for human-relevant research.
Opportunities to move away from animal models exist now more than ever with the availability of human cell lines, stem cells and tissues, computational models and researchers eager to accept the challenges of developing more human-focused methodologies. Therefore, special consideration will be given to proposals that are likely to replace the use of animals in research.
Recipients of IFER Graduate Fellowships, selected by IFER’s Scientific Advisory Board, have the potential to positively change the course of science by working to promote the advancement of more human-relevant methodologies that can also spare animal suffering. Since 1985, grants totaling more than $1 million have been awarded to promising young researchers who are developing alternatives to the use of animals in science.

More information on the IFER Graduate Fellowship program, including eligibility requirements, submission guidelines, and a link to the online application can be found on the IFER website at www.ifer.org/fellowships.php.
