CHF recently awarded three Clinician-Scientist Fellowships to promising researchers at Cornell University, The Ohio State University, and the University of Florida. Their projects studying hemangiosarcoma treatment, a new technique for urethral catheterization, and atopic dermatitis will have a positive impact on the health of dogs for years to come.
Donations in support of CHF’s Hemangiosarcoma Research Initiative have been fully matched by the American German Shepherd Dog Charitable Foundation (AGSDCF) as part of their three-year, $100,000 pledge to fight this deadly canine cancer.
AKC.tv recently interviewed CHF Executive Director, Dr. Calvin Carpenter, for an episode of Dog Center: Live from 101 Park. He provided updates on CHF activities including our One Health approach to research and new grants under review for funding in 2021.
