Large Animal Studies
The mission of Morris Animal Foundation is to advance the science of animal health. Toward this aim, we are dedicated to funding hypothesis-driven and humane animal health research projects of high scientific merit and potential impact. Relevant projects promise to advance the health and well-being of companion animals and/or wildlife.
Large Companion Animals (Horses and Llama/Alpacas): Proposals for Established Investigator, First Award, Fellowship Training and Pilot Study grants on topics relevant to large companion animal health and welfare are due by 11:59 p.m. EST on Wednesday, July 12, 2017.
All proposals relevant to the mission of the Foundation will be given equal consideration for funding. This year, we are particularly interested in inviting proposals that address the following topics:
1. Genetics and epigenetics of health and disease
2. Stress, biomarkers of stress and welfare, and the impact of stress on health outcomes
3. Gut health and the association of microbiome with health outcomes
Funding decisions will be made in mid-November 2017 with grant awards starting as early as December 1, 2017.
