Canine Health Research RFP

The AKC Canine Health Foundation supports basic and clinical research into canine health and well-being through our Research Program Areas. Subjects of emphasis within our program areas include genetics, mechanisms of disease, pathology and molecular basis of disease, and clinical application of research findings to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of canine diseases. Collaborative, multi-disciplinary teams of investigators who can approach hypothesis-driven research from a multi-‘omics’ perspective will be considered more competitive than investigators working in isolation. The AKC Canine Health Foundation embraces a "One-Health" translational approach to investigations for comparative medicine that will benefit both dogs and their people.

Proposals are being accepted for the following Research Program Areas:

The deadline for applications is Thursday, August 17, 2017 at 11:59 PM Eastern. Both Acorn ($15,000 maximum including 8% indirect costs) and Oak (over $15,000 including 8% indirect costs) grant proposals that can be completed within the budget will be accepted. All studies must strictly adhere to the Foundation's Humane Use of Animals Policy.
