Home / NEWS & MEDIA / Zoetis And Winn Feline Foundation Announce Call For Research Proposals
A Total of $100,000 Available to Fund Feline Pain, Osteoarthritis, Joint Health and Kidney Disease Research
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - February 26, 2014 - The Winn Feline Foundation, in a unique funding opportunity sponsored by Zoetis Inc., announced today a call for proposals to address the assessment of pain, osteoarthritis, joint health and kidney disease in cats. A total of $100,000 is available to fund proposals of sufficient scientific merit, relevance and potential to impact feline health.
Consideration will be given to proposals investigating novel biomarkers for assessing acute or chronic adaptive pain and maladaptive (i.e., neuropathic or functional) pain in cats. Biomarkers for assessing osteoarthritis progression are also of interest. Scientifically sound projects that investigate the cause and progression of osteoarthritis in cats will also be considered, regardless of biomarker assessment.
Additionally, because methods for early detection and progression of feline chronic kidney disease are urgently needed, Zoetis and the Winn Feline Foundation are also soliciting proposals to identify systemic or urinary biomarkers for early detection or progression of chronic kidney disease.
“As a science-based company, Zoetis is proud of its commitment to research and development. We do what it takes to help current and future veterinarians have the necessary tools to improve the quality and length of companion animals’ lives,” said Karen Greenwood, Unit Head, Companion Animal Internal Medicine, Global Therapeutic Research for Zoetis. “We’ve aligned with the Winn Feline Foundation to support their efforts to seek important research projects that will enhance feline medicine.”
To apply for the Winn Feline Foundation/Zoetis grant, researchers can visit http://www.winnfelinehealth.org/Pages/Researchers.html and submit proposals by April 21, 2014. Grant amounts are anticipated to range from $12,000 to $35,000 for one to two year projects; however, larger projects will also be seriously considered.
Since its inception in 1968, the Winn Feline Foundation has awarded grants totaling more than $4.5 million for scientific studies, encouraging veterinarians and researchers to focus attention on the health needs of cats.
The joint grant program is a part of the Zoetis Commitment to Veterinarians™ platform—which offers support through training and education, research and development, investing in the future of the veterinary profession, and philanthropy. The grant complements a number of other Zoetis programs supporting the veterinary profession, including millions invested in universities, industry education and training, scholarships, and allied organizations each year.
