In 2011 the Winn Feline Foundation, in partnership with the George Sydney and Phyllis Redman Miller Trust, awarded grants totaling $102,887 to six research projects intended to improve cat health.

This past November, the foundation announced grants were awarded for studies on stem cell therapies for inflammatory bowel disease and asthma, cancer therapy, feline infectious peritonitis, pain management, and a safe imaging and oxygen chamber for cats.

The Winn Feline Foundation has provided more than $3 million for health research for cats since 1968. Grants are awarded twice yearly with the help of the foundation's expert review panel. For further information, go to www.winnfelinehealth.org.
