Blood Disorders Grants
The AKC Canine Health Foundation supports basic science discovery and clinical research into the treatment of blood disorders through the Blood Disorders Research Program. This program supports research into the pathophysiology of disease, molecular and genetic basis of disease and identification of potential therapeutic drugs that correct the cellular phenotypes associated with disease.
Recently funded grant titles:
- The Prevalence of the Dal-Negative Blood Type and Its Mode of Inheritance in Doberman Pinschers and in Dalmatians
- Recognizing and Removing Lipemic Interferences for Accurate Laboratory Testing
- Hyperlipidemia in the Miniature Schnauzer: A Combined Metabolomic and Genomic Approach
- Effect of Platelet Count on Platelet Function Tests in Dogs
- Creation of Platelet Function Testing Guidelines to Enhance Diagnosis and Prognosis of Bleeding Disorders in Dogs
The AKC Canine Health Foundation funds research in 18 different Research Program Areas. These program areas enable the Foundation to create depth in our research portfolio and help us to be responsive to the health concerns of our constituents.
Help Future Generations of Dogs
