2019 Canine Cancer Request for Proposals
AKC Canine Health Foundation
2019 Canine Cancer Request for Proposals (RFP)
The AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF) has strongly supported canine cancer research since its inception in 1995. CHF continues its commitment to address canine cancer by seeking projects for critical research to diagnose, prevent and/or treat cancer in dogs. Cancers of particular interest include hemangiosarcoma, soft tissue sarcomas, histiocytic sarcoma, mast cell tumor, lymphoma, and osteosarcoma; other canine cancers will also be considered. The Foundation is focused on funding research with an emphasis on mechanisms of disease, pathology and molecular basis of disease, epidemiology and environmental factors, and clinical application of research findings to prevent and treat cancer.
The mission of CHF is to advance the health of all dogs and their owners by funding sound scientific research and supporting the dissemination of health information to prevent, treat and cure canine disease. CHF supports a One Health model as a critical tool to achieving this vision, with a multidisciplinary approach to addressing the health needs of all dogs and their people. While CHF supports a One Health approach, proposed research outcomes must benefit dogs.
The deadline for online applications is Wednesday, August 28th, 2019 at 11:59 PM Eastern. Both Acorn ($15,000 maximum including 8% maximum indirect costs) and Oak (over $15,000 - $150,000, including 8% maximum indirect costs) grant proposals that can be completed within the budget will be accepted for review. Please contact CHF directly to discuss submission of study budgets greater than $150,000.
All work completed under this funding must strictly adhere to the Foundation's Humane Use of Animals Policy. Only eligible proposals will be considered. Please read the eligibility requirements .
Questions regarding this RFP should be directed to Andrea Fiumefreddo, CHF Director of Programs.
Please forward this announcement to other researchers seeking funding in this area of research.
