 New Zoetis grant funds ACVIM research

​Posted June 15, 2016

The American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine Foundation announced this May it had received a $60,000 grant from Zoetis to establish the Zoetis Restricted Fund in support of animal health studies.

The grant will be used to fund research by ACVIM diplomates with direct clinical application in the following general areas of interest: chronic diseases—microvascular and cardiac; prevention (biological) and treatment (antimicrobial and immunomodulators) of infectious diseases; pain, inflammation, and allergy; metabolic diseases; pain and pain management; genetics; and growth and performance enhancement.

The call for proposals will be announced to ACVIM diplomates July 6, with a deadline of Sept. 6.

“The ACVIM Foundation is committed to eliminating animal and human disease by supporting discovery, education, and partnerships throughout the community of medicine,” ACVIM Foundation Director Andrea Miller said. “This strategic partnership with Zoetis provides funding for advanced veterinary research that will make a significant difference in the studies around the diagnosis, treatment, and/or prevention of disease.”

Awarded proposals will be announced by the end of November. All approved grants must be completed within two years from the time the grant has been issued. For more information, visit here.
