Peer-Reviewed Publications Resulting from CHF-funded Grants

We invite you to learn about publications resulting from the Foundation's investments in research. One way CHF measures success in grantmaking is through the production of peer-reviewed publications. CHF-supported research has been published in 218 different peer-reviewed journals, including Nature Genetics and Science and frequently in journals such as the Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine, Animal Genetics and the American Journal of Veterinary Research.  By consistently funding the most innovative research, the AKC Canine Health Foundation is realizing both small milestones and major breakthroughs in canine health.

You may search the complete list of peer-reviewed publications by research program area, breed and/or disease associated with the grant.
