This year, the ACVECC Scientific Committee received (27) strong pre-proposals for the ACVECC research grant. Of the original (27), we then asked for and reviewed (8) full proposals. We are pleased to announce that Dr. Melissa Claus and colleagues from the Comparative Health Research Group at the College of Veterinary Medicine at Murdoch University were selected as the recipients of this year’s ACVECC research grant.
Their proposal is entitled The Use of Deferoxamine to reduce the inflammatory response in dogs with hemorrhagic shock treated with stored packed red blood cells.
We look forward to hearing the results of their research at IVECCS in 2019.
