@RoySmith: Thanks for the evaluation. It seems to me the article meets the basic criteria listed in WP:NORG. The coverage is significant : it is the main subject of the article in University Affairs, a national-level magazine and the CBC article, the national canadian broadcasting society and CTV, a national-level tv broadcasting companies.
It is multiple : CBC, CTV and University Affairs are different outlets.
It is independent, as these media are no part of the University of Windsor.
It is reliable as they are recognized mainstream media sources with editorial oversight.
They are secondary sources: They are not press releases but news articles.
As for the neutrality aspect, could you point out which parts don't seem neutral to you? Thanks for your work. MonsieurD (talk) 18:01, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

The Canadian Centre for Alternatives to Animal Methods (CCAAM) and its subsidiary, the Canadian Centre for the Validation of Alternative Methods (CaCVAM), strive to "to develop, validate, and promote laboratory methods and techniques that don’t use animal test subjects"[1]. Founded in 2017 by Dr. Charu Chandrasekera, it is based at the University of Windsor, in Canada, and is the first centre in the country dedicated to non-animal testing and the promotion of human-relevant alternatives[2][3].

Mission[edit | edit source]

The CCAAM's mission is based on three pillars[4]:

  • scientific research relying exclusively on human-based biomaterials and human biology-based methodologies;
  • academic training for scientists, ethicists, regulators, and policy makers, including development of a one-year masters programme[5];
  • regulatory initiatives for changing chemical safety methods in Canada, with academic, industry, government, and public partnerships.

Donation from the Eric S. Margolis Family Foundation[edit | edit source]

In 2018, it received a $1 million donation from the Eric S. Margolis Family Foundation, considered "the largest research donation in University of Windsor history"[6], part of which will be used to create a research and training facility. One of its projects is to develop methods using human stem cells for research on diabetes[7]
