The Clinical and Translational Research Unit (CTRU) located on the UGA Health Sciences Campus supports faculty who wish to conduct sponsored clinical studies that advance the understanding and treatment of human diseases. For students and health sciences trainees, the unit provides opportunities to learn how laboratory discoveries are translated into improved patient outcomes.
Competitive seed grant funds, enabled by the Augusta University/UGA Medical Partnership, are available up to $50,000 to support pilot studies based in the CTRU. Priority will be given to proposals that either:
Make a compelling case for generating preliminary data to enhance a specific external grant proposal (applicants must commit to applying to one or more specific grant mechanisms by the specified deadlines and should identify specific RFP/PA when possible); or
Generate required data for meeting reviewer recommendations for a grant resubmission (applicants should identify specific criticisms and indicate how the proposed studies will address these criticisms).
CTRU-funded proposals will be required to use budgeted funds by June 1, 2017. For this reason, proposed studies should already have IRB approval with modifications to include utilization of the CTRU either approved or in process, and should plan to complete study subject participation by June 2017.
American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine Foundation (ACVIMF): Veterinary Pharmacology Research Foundation Clinical Investigation Grants: Due September 14
Due to the generosity of the Veterinary Pharmacology Research Foundation, up to two grants of up to $27,000 each will be awarded to clinical studies focused on evaluating the safety and effectiveness of therapies for veterinary species, exploring new drug therapies for animals, developing and validating models of animal diseases or conditions, or ensuring that a safe food supply is not compromised by drug therapy. Proposals may request up to the total amount and multi-year projects up to two years will be considered, subject to annual non-competitive renewal based on demonstration of adequate progress on the project. In accordance with the ACVIM Foundation granting guidelines, all grant recipients are required to submit a mid-year report and final summary report which is due within three months after the last funded date of the project.
American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine Foundation (ACVIMF) and Zoetis Call for Research Proposals with Direct Clinical Application: Due September 14
ACVIMF and Zoetis have partnererd to grant up to $60,000 for a project that focuses on one or more of the following general areas of interest: Chronic diseases - microvascular and cardiac; Prevention(biological) and treatment (antimicrobial, immunomodulators) of infectious diseases; Pain, inflammation and allergy; Metabolic diseases; Pain and pain managment; Genetics, growth and performance enhancement.

American Association of Equine Practioners Foundation (AAEP) call for Excercies Induced Pulmonary Hemmorhage (EIPH) Research Grants: Due October 3rd
The AAEP Foundation has initiated fund raising for research on exercise induced pulmonary hemorrhage (EIPH) and is requesting research grant applications be submitted to Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation (GJCRF) (www.grayson-jockeyclub.org/default.asp?section=2&area=apply&menu=2). Through a cooperative agreement between AAEP Foundation and GJCRF, AAEP Foundation proposes to fund research grants on EIPH that are submitted to and evaluated by the GJCRF research advisory committee. EIPH grants determined to have excellent scientific merit by the GJCRF Research Advisory Committee will be eligible for funding by the AAEP Foundation, the GJCRF or jointly. More information including Instructions for submission and a list of research topics relevant to the EIPH call for proposals can be found here.
UGA Internal: Global Research Collaboration Grant Program: Due October 11
UGA is launching the second round of funding for the Global Research Collaboration Grant (GRCG) program to encourage the development of sustainable international research and service activities. Grants ranging from $4,000 to $8,000 will be awarded to support preliminary international research, partnership development, and preparation of proposals in pursuit of specific sources of external funding.
The program is funded by UGA’s Office of the Vice President for Research and the Office of International Education, in conjunction with academic units. Proposals are due October 11, 2016.
Grantees may use the funding over the course of one year for videoconferencing, travel and other collaborative efforts, preliminary data collection, feasibility studies and proposal preparation. To be eligible, proposals must identify and commit to pursue specific sources of external funding as a result of the activities enabled by the grant.
To help researchers identify potential funding, OVPR and OIE have developed a database of international funding opportunities, searchable by geographical location or subject matter, available online at http://research.uga.edu/oie. Training is available to faculty and support staff to develop customized funding queries for international funding in the Pivot database.
“There is increased interest, and steady growth, in funding opportunities available for international collaboration in a variety of research areas,” said Director of International Partnerships Brian Watkins. “The GRCG program provides the catalyst at UGA for targeted international research partnerships that will generate competitive proposals and also increase UGA’s research profile around the globe.”
CVM Internal: Grants on The Edge Program: Due November 1
The College of Veterinary Medicine and the OVPR are pleased to once again announce funding for the Grants on the Edge program, an internal small grant program aimed to help investigators strategically improve the viability of grant proposals for resubmission/submission to external funding sources.

Winn Feline Foundation Call for proposals, including New Feline Investigator Grant Award: Due December 12
Projects should have discrete and achievable goals within the $25,000 limit. They must demonstrate their relevance or benefit to domestic cats. Studies applicable to all cats are encouraged. Winn Feline Foundation is also interested in projects that address issues in individual breeds, nutrition and behavior. Although we are interested in all areas of feline health, we have dedicated funds for research in feline infectious peritonitis (Bria Fund), hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (Ricky Fund), and lung cancer in cats. In addition to the aforementioned funds, current breed specific special funds are available for Norwegian Forest Cat and Persian HCM studies, Birman heart disease studies, health issues in Abyssinians, and amyloidosis in Siamese-related breeds. Additional funding is available for research related to diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of abdominal cancer (liver, pancreas, intestinal tract).
Winn Feline Foundation has established a New Feline Investigator Grant Award that will begin with the 2017 Winn Grant Review. One grant will be awarded in the amount of $15,000 with $13,000 available for research and $2,000 available for travel expenses to present the study results at a major veterinary conference. Eligibility: Candidates for the award must be in a DVM/PhD program pathway at a college or school of veterinary medicine which currently applies for grants from Winn along with having an interest and working in feline health research. The candidate must be the primary principal investigator on the project and should select the application box for the New Feline Investigator Award on the 2017 Winn Grant cover sheet. The guidelines related to types of health studies, format and progress reports/publications would apply to this award in the same manner as other Winn grant awards. Winn will also require the acceptance of a written agreement to release funding for this award.

OF particular interest is collie breed-specific research which includes but is not limited to: Gastric Volvulus-Torsion, Autoimmune Skin Disease and Dermatomyositis, Epilepsy, Infertility, Urinary Incontinence in spayed females, and MDR1 clinical application. We will consider quality research of any disease affecting the canine.
If you have such a project for which you would like to seek funding from the Collie Health Foundation, please fill out the Letter of Intent and/or the full application form. Our application process continues year-round.
