2020 Grand Challenges in Avian Medicine:
Support Of Avian Research (SOAR) 40K Grant Opportunity
In celebration of AAV's 40th anniversary, we are soliciting research proposals addressing significant areas of need for research in avian species. Following a survey of avian specialists, we established three distinct topics to be covered under this unique grant opportunity:
- Atherosclerosis and cardiac disease
- Avian bornavirus
- Feather-damaging behavior
Preference will be given to grant submissions relating to avian species traditionally kept as companions or to projects in which the major findings are relevant to companion species, however strong proposals relating only to zoological species will also be considered. For the purposes of this grant, companion birds are defined as “species normally maintained in or near the household of the owner or person who cares for such animals” and can include companion poultry and species used for falconry. Grants are limited to $40,000.00 US for individual projects.
Details about the SOAR Grant and Call for Pre-proposal details are available at the link below.
AAV Wild Bird Health Grant Opportunity
Pre-proposals for research projects addressing wild bird health are now being accepted for consideration for funding by the Association of Avian Veterinarians (AAV). Projects of interest include but are not limited to epidemiology of disease in wild populations, ecotoxicology, diagnostic testing and treatment of wild birds, and conservation medicine. Grants are limited to $5,000.00 US for individual projects.
