Since its inception, Winn Feline Foundation has awarded over $5 million in grants for scientific studies, encouraging veterinarians and researchers to focus attention on the health needs of cats. More information can be found here.
Though studies applicable to all cats are preferred, Winn Feline Foundation is also interested in projects that address issues in specific cat breeds (e.g. Norwegian Forest Cats, Birmans, Persians). Further, we have dedicated funds for feline infectious peritonitis, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and lung cancer research in cats. In June, 2015, a new fund dedicated for research on amyloidosis in Siamese-related breeds was established.
American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine: Letters of Intent Due December 3
The mission of the ACLAM Foundation is to expand the body of knowledge in the fields of laboratory animal science and medicine through funding research grants. The Foundation will fund studies in the following sixlaboratory animal research subjects:
5. Refinement of animal models. Emphasis is on Russell & Birch 3R's - reduction, refinement, replacement - not on new research model development.
6. Zoonotic disease. High quality research proposals are solicited that address the broad area of zoonotic diseases in any laboratory animal species. Research funding from the Elizabeth R. Griffin Research Foundation is available for research studies of zoonotic disease (prevention or treatment) or enhanced laboratory safety practices (protection from zoonotic disease transmission). Working in conjunction with the ACLAM Foundation and utilizing the grant review mechanism outlined above, Griffin Board members will be involved in proposal reviews.
