To support strategic scientific dialogue around the concept of extending the vision of “21st century toxicology” to the wider biosciences, Humane Society International and The Humane Society of the United States are offering grants of up to $10,000 (USD) in funding to support the development and open-access publication of in-depth, independent review articles in discrete areas of human disease/biomedicine by health scientists with relevant expertise.
Each review should:
- Examine the state of the science in a specific area of human biomedicine, including current understanding of the underlying pathophysiological pathways and networks;
- Critically evaluate the human relevance, translational success and limitations of conventional research models;
- Offer concrete recommendations/roadmap for optimizing the funding and use of advanced, human-specific tools and approaches (pathway paradigm as an organizing framework, primary human cells/tissues, iPSC, organoids, bioengineering, computational systems biology modeling, etc.) in the disease area under discussion; and
- Be accepted for publication in a high-visibility, peer-reviewed journal.
