Winn reviews new proposals for funding

The Winn grant review panel met on Feb. 11 in Houston, TX to review 44 proposals received for funding. Our reviewers are drawn from experts in veterinary medicine:

  • Dr. Shila Nordone, North Carolina State College of Veterinary Medicine
  • Dr. Patricia Gallo, THE Boston Cat Hospital, Boston, MA
  • Dr. Brian Holub, Countryside Veterinary Hospital, Chelmsford, MA
  • Dr. Margie Scherk, Cats INK, Vancouver, BC
  • Dr. Vicki Thayer, Winn president
  • Dr. Melissa Kennedy, University of Tennessee and Winn board member
  • Dr. Susan Little, Bytown Cat Hospital, Ottawa, ON and Winn board member

The review panel choose the best proposals for funding based on their scientific merit, budgetary soundness, and potential impact on the health of all cats. The Winn board ratified the recommendations from the review panel at our board meeting on Feb. 12. Grants were awarded in several areas of feline medicine, including heart disease, FIP, cancer, kidney disease, and chronic pain.
