Equid Proposals


The Morris Animal Foundation (MAF) is pleased to announce they are accepting proposals for studies focused on domestic equid health topics.

In addition, the MAF has a special interest in proposals focused on pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction (PPID). Applicants considering submitting a proposal focused on this disease are directed to learn more about research questions of interest as identified during a PPID priority-setting partnership workshop.

All proposals should advance the science of the health and overall welfare of domestic horses, ponies, mules or donkeys. Please note that for racehorses and other professional athletes, the MAF fund research focused on health and quality of life only where outcomes are likely to be of universal equine/equid benefit. Use of other species as models (including laboratory rodents) is not appropriate for this topic.
