The American Veterinary Medical Foundation is requesting proposals for 2003-2004 AVMF Research Grants: Clinical Research Related to Diseases Affecting Cats and Dogs.

The foundation is offering $80,000 to fund two to four research proposals related to the following three topics:

  • Prevention of cranial cruciate deterioration and ligament rupture in dogs
  • Assessment and treatment of behavioral abnormalities in geriatric companion animals
  • Assessment or development of prognostic indicators for cancer in companion animals

The AVMF and the AVMA Council on Research encourage collaborative research, and in particular, collaboration between private-practice veterinarians and academic veterinarians.

The deadline for submission of proposals is March 1, 2004. The Council on Research will review all submitted proposals, using ad hoc reviewers as necessary. Grant award winners will be announced in August 2004.
