The Academy of Veterinary Dentistry is accepting applications for a $6,000 research grant to fund a project involving the oral cavity or one that promotes veterinary dentistry. This year's award is funded by a $5,000 grant from the AVD and a $1,000 contribution from Dr. Michael Floyd, who donated his AVD Fellow-of-the-Year Award, provided by Pfizer Animal Health.
The funding period is one year, and a presentation is required at the end of the grant period to communicate research findings. It is to be presented at the annual Veterinary Dental Forum in the fall of 2002.
