Wildlife & Exotic 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 wildlife.
Wildlife/Exotics: Proposals for Established Investigator, First Award, Fellowship Training and Pilot Study grants on topics relevant to wildlife/exotics health and welfare are due by 11:59 p.m. EST on Wednesday, November 15, 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:
- Genetics and epigenetics of health and disease
- Stress, biomarkers of stress and welfare, and the impact of stress on health outcomes
- Gut health and the association of microbiome with health outcomes
Funding decisions will be made in late-March 2018 with grant awards starting as early as May 1, 2018.
