Zoetis is seeking proposals for well-defined studies that focus on optimizing the immune response of sows and gilts for the control of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV). The studies should provide insights into new methods that can help control PEDV in breeding and farrowing herds.
A total of $125,000 will be awarded by Zoetis to a study or studies under its PEDV immune response research grant program. University researchers or practicing veterinarians are invited to submit research proposals for consideration.
Research proposals must be received by Dec. 5. The research must be conducted in the United States. To receive a copy of the abstract template or to submit questions, e-mail PEDVResearch@zoetis.com. A committee will review the proposals, and an announcement of the successful applications will be made in January.
