Neurology Grants

The AKC Canine Health Foundation supports basic science discovery and clinical research into the treatment of neurological diseases through the Neurology Research Program Area. This program supports research into the molecular and genetic basis of disease, and the identification of potential therapeutics to treat neurologic disorders.
