Endocrinology Grants

The AKC Canine Health Foundation supports basic science discovery and clinical research into the treatment of diseases of the endocrine system through the Endocrinology Research Program Area. This program supports research into the genetic and epigenetic cause of disease; therapeutic applications of stem cells; novel imaging technologies with diagnostic and prognostic utility; biomarker development and the identification of potential therapeutics to treat endocrine disorders.
