Morris Animal Foundation accepting study of domestic equid health proposals
Proposals are being accepted now through December 16, 2022
Morris Animal Foundation announced it is currently accepting proposals for studies with a focus on domestic equid health topics. The Foundation also disclosed that it has a special interest in any proposals with a primary focus on pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction (PPID), also known as Cushing’s disease.
According to the release,1 PPID is the most prevalent endocrine disorder of equids and affects over 20% of donkeys, horses, and ponies. If you are considering submitting a proposal focusing on PPID, Morris Animal Foundation directs you to learn more about research questions of interest as identified during a priority setting partnership workshop on PPID.
All submitted proposals must seek to advance the health and overall well-being of domestic donkeys, horses, mules, and ponies. Each application is reviewed and rated by the foundation’s scientific advisory board, made up of experts within the veterinary industry, and based on impact and scientific rigor.
Applications will be accepted until December 16, 2022, and the foundation encourages interested researchers to download its proposal guidelines and template. For more information, visit the Morris Animal Foundation website.
