Immunology and Infectious Disease Grants
The Immunology Research Program Area is combined with the Infectious Disease Research Program Area because there is substantial overlap in protection against and resolution of pathogenic infection and immunity against pathogens. This research seeks to define unique and evolutionarily conserved features of canine immune response pathways and determine how these pathways initiate, sustain, moderate, and resolve immune responses in dogs.
Previously Awarded Grants:
The AKC Canine Health Foundation funds research in 23 different Research Program Areas for the health of all dogs. 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.
