Dermatology and Allergic Disease 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:
- Targeting Immune Cells as a Novel Treatment for Canine Atopic Dermatitis
- Placebo-controlled trial of T-cell receptor (TCR) peptide treatment in dogs with non-responsive atopic dermatitis
- Is Defective Secretion of Antimicrobial Peptides Associated with Reduced Microbicidal Effects in Atopic Keratinocytes?
- Intralymphatic Immunotherapy for the Treatment of Canine Atopic Dermatitis
- Improvement of Risk Assessments for Dermatomyositis Testing
- Identifying the Genetic Cause of Sebaceous Adenitis
- Identification of the Genes That Confer Risk for Atopic Dermatitis
- Genomic Resources for the Control of Canine Pyoderma
- Evaluating the Contribution of Fungal Infection to the Pathogenesis of Atopic Dermatitis: Putting Evidence under the Use of Antifungal Medication
- Establishing Best Practices in the Treatment of Atopic Dermatitis to Prevent Antimicrobial Resistance
- Discovery of the Genetic Cause of Lethal Acrodermatitis
- Development of Anti-IgE Peptide for Treatment of Canine Allergy
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
Participate in canine health research by providing samples or by enrolling in a clinical trial. Samples are needed from healthy dogs and dogs affected by specific diseases.
