Pig Health Foundation Invites Research Proposals

16 January 2014

US - The American Association of Swine Veterinarians (AASV) Foundation has earmarked $60,000 for research and is inviting proposals by 31 January.

Moving forward with a revitalised commitment to fund research with direct application to the profession, the AASV Foundation Board announces that $60,000 will be available for research support in 2014.

This amount represents a dramatic increase from previous years – a direct result of the success of the 2013 fundraising auction, which was spurred to new heights by matching funds provided by MJ Biologics and MVP Laboratories. Bill Marks and Mary Lou Hogg, who signed the $100,000 matching-funds cheque last March, are intent on encouraging and supporting research to benefit the swine industry.

A call for research proposals has been issued by the Foundation, with submissions due by 31 January  2014. A maximum of $30,000 may be requested per proposal. The proposals selected for funding will be announced on 2 March 2014 during the AASV Foundation Luncheon in Dallas, Texas.
