Grants Available for Feline Medical Studies

From The Foundation Center...

Winn Feline Foundation to Support Research Related to Cat Health

Deadline: December 3, 2007

The Winn Feline Foundation ( http://www.winnfelinehealth.org/ ), a nonprofit organization founded by the Cat Fanciers' Association ( http://www.cfainc.org/ ) to support health-related studies about medical problems affecting cats, is accepting applications for its 2008 grants program.

During the fiscal year ending April 30, 2007, the foundation funded eight grants totaling $127,544 in areas such as feline hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, feline renal disease, infectious diseases, mammary cancer, feline genetics, and drug treatments.

Studies applicable to all cats are encouraged. The foundation is also interested in projects that address problems in individual breeds and has some dedicated funds for research into mediastinal lymphoma, feline infectious peritonitis, and inherited hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

The foundation does not fund salaries of principal investigators, major equipment expenditures, travel, or indirect costs. Applicants may be faculty veterinarians, post-doctoral fellows, practicing veterinarians, or veterinary students. The maximum grant amount is $15,000. Multi-year proposals totaling more than $15,000 will not be considered. Continuation of grants awarded in 2007 will be considered.

Complete program guidelines and information on previously funded projects are available at the foundation's Web site.
