 AAFP requests research proposals

Posted Oct. 1, 2007

The American Association of Feline Practitioners is seeking proposals for its 2008 grant for meaningful research in feline medicine. The $20,000 award will be given to the researcher whose proposal shows the most clinical merit.

The research committee will give preference to funding complete projects, but does not preclude matching funds. Only nonterminal studies will be funded. The committee also will give preference to clinical studies of patients rather than research animals.

The deadline for submissions is Dec. 15 to AAFP, 203 Towne Centre Drive, Hillsborough, NJ 08844. The AAFP's contact information is info@aafponline.org; phone, (908) 359-9351; fax, (908) 359-7619.

Applications are available at www.aafponline.org under Resources and then Research Grants.
