VCCIS Immunology Pilot Study Grant: Call for Funding Proposals

The Veterinary Comparative and Clinical Immunology Society (VCCIS) Inc. invites applications for funding of projects investigating clinical or comparative immunology of cats and/or dogs up to a maximum sum of $6,000 and to be completed within 3 years of funding being awarded.  Such proposals may include, but are not limited to, investigations of immune-mediated disease, allergy, immunodeficiency, vaccine immunology, immunity to infectious diseases, and immunomodulatory therapies.  While novel approaches are welcomed, VCCIS will also be happy to consider proposals to repeat previous studies in a more robust manner to improve the quality of the evidence base.  VCCIS encourages a collaborative approach among some combination of clinicians, laboratory scientists, bioinformaticians, and human clinicians and researchers.

Priority will be given to proposed studies that:

  • Improve the management of animals with prevalent disease(s) that cause high morbidity or mortality
  • Are based on sound and current immunological principles

The deadline for abstracts is 5 pm EST on December 1st, 2021.

The VCCIS grant is made possible by generous support from Boehringer Ingelheim Ltd.
