Ophthalmology Grants

Through the Ophthalmology Research Program Area, the AKC Canine Health Foundation will support basic and clinical research into diseases of the canine eye. Areas of emphasis within this program area include genetics, mechanisms of disease, pathology and molecular interactions important to the eye, and clinical application of research findings to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases affecting the eye and visual system.
