Critical Needs for Research in Veterinary Science Sponsor Description National Science Foundation Two divisions that are most relevant to veterinary research are the Division on Integrative Biology and Neuroscience and Division of Molecular and Cellular Biosciences in the Directorate for Biological Sciences; does not support research with disease-related goals or research on animal models for studying diseases or testing of drugs Ohio Animal Health Foundation Proposed research should contribute to improving or promoting health and general welfare of animal population. Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America Foundation, Inc. Offers financial support to people beginning their independent research careers at faculty level; research interests are in pharmaceuticals Sandler Family Supporting Foundation Mission of Sandler Program for Asthma Research is to develop important new pathways of investigation in basic research regarding asthma; program particularly encourages applications from investigators not currently studying asthma; innovation and risk are strongly encouraged US Department of Agriculture Has various funding programs that support research in animal growth, development, and nutrient utilization, and animal genome and genetic mechanisms Whitaker Foundation Research Grants program supports research projects that enable investigators to establish academic careers in biomedical engineering or closely related field Small Animal Research American Animal Hospital Association Foundation Funds practitioner-oriented research projects aimed at improving lives of companion animals through veterinary medicine; projects should be of immediate value to practicing veterinarian; project results, when published, should provide information that practitioners will find of use in dealing with patients; to degree possible, projects should use case material rather than laboratory or research animals American Association of Feline Practitioners Academy of Feline Medicine Offer research awards to persons doing meaningful research in feline medicine and/or surgery; awards are given for research whose application shows most clinical merit; strong preference will be given to noneuthanasia studies and to funding complete research projects, rather than partial funding of projects; this does not preclude matching funds; preference will be given to funding clinical studies of patients, rather than research animals American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine Foundation Funds research in laboratory animal science and medicine

Critical Needs for Research in Veterinary Science Sponsor Description American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation Research interests include bloat, canine genetics, clinical research, cataracts, hip dysplasia, patellar luxation, and special studies; proposals addressing other diseases related to health of dogs are also encouraged American Rabbit Breeders Association Proposed research should benefit current needs for rabbit and cavy research in all phases of industry (commercial and fancy) and not single out any one or two breeds of rabbits or cavies Association of Avian Veterinarians Proposals should address conservations needs of wild avian populations International Feline Foundation Will provide single, competitively awarded grant for research on health and welfare of domestic cats; research topics considered include infectious disease and epidemiology, noninfectious diseases, genetic diseases, congenital disease, and control, prevention, or treatment of feline diseases and behavioral problems Nestle Purina Company Objective is to facilitate advancement of knowledge in canine and feline nutrition and health care; invasive research will not be considered The Pet Care Trust Supports research to improve understanding of environmental, humane, social, economic, and medical aspects of health, care, and possession of companion animals Vaccine Associated Feline Sarcoma Task Force Research goals are to facilitate investigations into epidemiology, etiopathogenesis, treatment, and prevention of soft tissue sarcomas in domestic cats occurring at sites of routine vaccinations and other injections Veterinary Orthopedic Society Funds studies in veterinary orthopedics. Winn Feline Foundation A nonprofit organization, affiliated with Cat Fanciers’ Association, Inc., that supports research into medical problems affecting cats; studies of general scope are primarily encouraged, but foundation is interested in projects that address problems peculiar to individual breeds. Food Animal American Association of Swine Veterinarians Foundation Funds research with direct application to swine veterinary profession National Mastitis Research Foundation Supports research in subjects affecting udder and cow health and milk quality National Pork Board Solicits research proposals on pork production (environment and swine health) and pork products (quality, safety, and nutrition) US Poultry & Egg Association Funds research projects that benefit poultry and egg industry; proposed research projects should be designed to provide information that has potential to resolve real industry problems

Critical Needs for Research in Veterinary Science Sponsor Description Equine American Horse Shows Association Subjects of special concern to performance and show horses American Quarter Horse Association Supports research in equine infections, anemia, navicular syndrome, laminitis, glycogen storage disorders, and fertility in mares and stallions; also has matching funds program for research in specific horse health issues Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation Supports research relevant to equine cardiopulmonary disorders, infectious diseases, musculoskeletal disorders, and reproduction US Equestrian Federation, Inc. Solicits proposals of special concern to performance and show horses Many of the funding sources listed above have limited resources so that they may offer small awards periodically.
