The nonprofit Winn Feline Foundation, which supports health related studies into medical problems affecting cats, is asking for cat grant proposals for 2007.

Studies applicable to all cats are encouraged, but the foundation says it’s also interested in projects that address problems in individual breeds.

This year, it says, the foundation is particularly interested in cat grant proposals for research into mediastinal lymphoma, mammary adenocarcinoma and inherited hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

The application deadline is Dec. 4, 2006. Awards will be announced in March 2007. The maximum grant amount is $15,000. Multi-year proposals totaling more than $15,000 will not be considered. Additional funds might be available for breed-related studies.

In 2005, the foundation gave 11 research grants totaling $131,364 for cat medical problems, including diabetes, infectious diseases and critical care, as well as for research on cat genetics and drug treatments.

For more information about grant requirements, contact the Winn Feline Foundation at (856) 447-9787 or visit www.WinnFelineHealth.org.
