MAF has committed to funding more than $4.6 million in traditional animal health studies for 2008 alone and ongoing support of $10 million for these studies as they continue over the next three years. The complete list of health studies can be viewed at http://www.MorrisAnimalFoundation.org, or request a printed health study sponsorship booklet by calling (800) 243-2345.

MAF's 2008 selection of studies is being conducted at nearly 50 of the world's most elite veterinary colleges, zoological institutions and scientific research centers. In addition to key facts on MAF, the sponsorship booklet details 43 canine health studies, including many crucial health and welfare issues such as behavior, cancer, heart disease, influenza, and epilepsy. Likewise, 17 feline health research studies cover asthma, cancer, kidney diseases and obesity. The selection of 11 equine studies includes research on foal diseases, laminitis, pain management and osteoarthritis. The directory also covers five health studies related to gastrointestinal disorders, nutrition, pain management and reproduction in llamas and alpacas.

The directory also details some 36 wildlife health studies covering mountain gorillas, elephants, wild cats, foxes, wolves, fish, birds, marine life, and much more. MAF is the world's largest private source of funding for wildlife health research.

In addition to traditional studies, 30 Veterinary Student Scholars are conducting short-term health study projects at universities worldwide. The MAF-supported program is designed to help fill a critical need for training the next generation of veterinary scientists. Veterinary Student Scholars are given the opportunity to work with a mentor on research projects early in their careers, allowing them to consider a career in veterinary research. These projects are also available for sponsorship in 2008 and are listed on the MAF Web site.
