The nonprofit Winn Feline Foundation is calling for grant proposals for 2007. In 2005, the foundation gave 11 research grants totaling $131,364 for medical problems relating to cats, including hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, diabetes, and infectious diseases, critical care, as well as for research on feline genetics, and drug treatments.
Studies applicable to all cats are encouraged. The Winn Feline Foundation is also interested in projects that address problems in individual breeds. This year, the foundation is particularly interested in research into mediastinal lymphoma, mammary adenocarcinoma, and inherited hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
The application deadline is Dec. 4, 2006. The maximum grant amount is $15,000, and awards will be announced in March 2007. Multiyear proposals totaling more than $15,000 will not be considered. Additional funds may be available for breed-related studies.
