Morris Animal Foundation seeks proposals to study mitochondrial function, chronic disease in cats and dogs

Apply by Nov. 23

Morris Animal Foundation’s request for proposals for the study of interactions between mitochondrial function and chronic diseases in dogs or cats has been extended to Wednesday, Nov. 23, 2022.

Diseases studied include cognitive dysfunction syndrome, renal disease, unresponsive atopic dermatitis and dilated cardiomyopathy, according to the foundation. Any diseases where mitochondrial dysfunction may play a role are of interest. This request is part of the Donor-Inspired Study program, which allows individuals or organizations to directly support a research topic for which there is a pressing need.

Successful applicants will be expected to focus on connection of mitochondrial energy function at the cellular level with systemic wellness. Wellness should be interpreted broadly, inclusive of behavior, energy, appetite and emotional or affective states. Ideal applications will involve collaborations between biomedical research groups who are already established in the field of mitochondrial biology and disease and veterinary researchers or clinicians. Approaches must be noninvasive, and laboratory animal models are not of interest. Samples from Morris Animal Foundation’s Golden Retriever Lifetime Study may be made available to relevant projects.

The maximum project duration is 36 months, and the budget cannot exceed $150,000 USD. Indirect costs are not permitted for this request for proposal.

Visit Fluxx to apply. If you are applying for the first time, your account must be reviewed and validated by Morris Animal Foundation, which may take up to two business days. For more information, see the foundation’s press release or visit the Apply For a Grant page.
