Dermatology and Allergic Skin Disease Research Program RFP
The AKC Canine Health Foundation is requesting basic science, discovery and clinical research that will aid in the prevention and treatment of dermatologic and allergic disease. Research into the pathophysiology of skin disease, including the role of immune function in the pathogenesis of disease, relevance of infection in the development and exacerbations of skin and allergic diseases; identification of novel therapeutics and new diagnostic tests, and the role of environmental allergens and/or genetic background as risk factors for the development of skin and allergic diseases are all considered responsive. As with all CHF research programs, collaborative, multi-disciplinary teams of investigators who can approach discovery research from a multi-‘omics’ perspective will be considered more competitive than genomic research approaches working in isolation.
