 Funds available for research on porcine circovirus

Posted April 1, 2008

Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica Inc. again requests proposals for studies investigating porcine circovirus-associated disease.

The company created the PCVAD Research Award Program in 2006 to help facilitate better understanding of the disease and the development of effective management solutions.

The program targets swine researchers, academia, veterinarians and veterinary students, and producer organizations throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Three $25,000 awards are available annually for yearlong studies to generate information about PCVAD with relevance to enhancing disease diagnosis, control, prevention, or eradication.

The deadline for research proposals is July 1. Instructions and forms for submitting proposals are available at www.pcvadresearch.com or by contacting Trudy Luther at (800) 821-7467, Ext. 2780.
