The American Kennel Club's Canine Health Foundation seeks pre-proposals for research on canine health. The submission deadline is March 1.

The CHF is accepting pre-proposals for preclinical and clinical studies with budgets exceeding $12,000 and a duration of one or two years. The foundation will consider making special dispensations for three-year projects.

The CHF will select pre-proposals and notify principal investigators by April 9. Investigators whose pre-proposals receive approval must submit a full application by May 15. The foundation will make funding decisions in September.

Investigators may submit research proposals throughout the year for Acorn grants of $12,000 or less. All recipients of CHF funding receive access to the Canine Health Information Center DNA Repository.
