$1.2 million supports eight studies
The Morris Animal Foundation (MAF) has awarded researchers at the College of Veterinary Medicine at Ohio State eight grants totaling more than $1.2 million dollars. Dogs, cats, horses and even alpacas are the beneficiaries of the studies that examine a variety of health issues, from the characterization of cancerous tumors to enriching the lives of animals housed in shelters.
According to the MAF, helping animals enjoy longer, healthier lives requires ongoing scientific animal health research to give veterinarians the tools they need to better diagnose and treat animals. They are a world leader in supporting research to prevent, diagnose, treat and even cure disease in companion animals and wildlife, and have committed to funding more than 200 animal health studies in 2010, with support for those studies totaling $13 million over the next three years.
