The Kennel Club Health Foundation Fund
calls for research proposals

Applications for funds are sought from interested parties who wish to initiate research towards the development of DNA tests for inherited diseases in the dog.

The Kennel Club Health Foundation Fund (KCHFF) represents ring-fenced funds within the Kennel Club Charitable Trust to provide financial support for breed clubs and councils to initiate research, in collaboration with an appropriate scientific partner, designed principally to develop DNA tests for inherited diseases that affect their breed. Applications for funds to supplement those already raised by the breed club(s) or council will be considered by the Trustees of the Kennel Club Charitable Trust, who are particularly interested in receiving proposals for one or two year projects.

The first annual deadline for grant proposals to the KCHFF will be September 30th 2002.

Guidelines for Grant Proposals can be obtained by contacting Dr Jeff Sampson, The Kennel Club, 1-5 Clarges Street, Piccadilly, London W1J 8AB.
