Gastrointestinal Disease Grants

The AKC Canine Health Foundation supports basic science discovery and clinical research into the treatment of gastrointestinal disease through the Gastrointestinal Disease Research Program Area. This program supports research into the pathophysiology of disease, molecular and genetic basis of disease and identification of potential therapeutic drugs that reduce the pathology associated with disease.
