The CVM Committee on Research will review proposals related to livestock, poultry, horses or commercial fish production. Projects must address issues related to animal health. Grants are limited to $10,000. Funds may be used for Expenses, Salary and Wages (S&W) for full or part-time staff or undergraduate/graduate students. Priority ratings will be given to each proposal. Budgetary restrictions may make it impossible to fund all approved requests. Due to changes in the USDA approvals process, items of equipment, no matter their cost, will not be funded this year.
Research Scope of Funding
The scope of research conducted with Section 1433 funds includes promotion of general welfare through improved health and productivity of domestic livestock, poultry, aquatic animals and other income-producing animals which are essential to the nation’s food supply and the welfare of producers and consumers of animal products; improvement in the health of horses; facilitation of the effective treatment and/or prevention of diseases in both domesticated and wild species; minimization of livestock and poultry losses due to transportation and handling; to protect human health through control of animal diseases transmissible to humans; to improve methods of controlling the birth of predators and other animals; and to promote the general welfare through expanded programs of research and extension to improve animal health.
Animal Health Research comprises basic and applied studies on infectious and noninfectious agents that impair the normal state of the living animal body and/or that affect the performance of vital functions. Studies are classified as Animal Health Research if they relate directly to the health of a target livestock, poultry, or aquatic animal species and may include laboratory studies, research on animal care as it relates to livestock health and well-being, and investigations of metabolic diseases and reproductive diseases. Molecular biology applications to animal health problems are included.
Who May Apply
CVM faculty, both regular and non-regular, at assistant professor level or above may apply for funds.
CVM Clinical Instructors are also eligible.
Faculty members acting as a PI may submit no more than one proposal for committee review.
Investigators who currently have AHFF funding and have been granted an extension for the next fiscal year are also not eligible to apply.
Proposal Deadline (email to email@example.com ) August 15, 2022
Funds Available ~ October 1, 2022
Project Period October 1, 2022 – September 30, 2023
Funds will not be released until all information required by NIFA has been completed and NIFA has approved the project. An animal protocol must be approved by the MU Animal Care and Use Committee and approval filed with the proposal. Note if protocol is pending. NIFA will not accept “Client Owned Permission” agreements in lieu of approved protocol. Approval for recombinant DNA, biosafety, or radioactive materials must also be included.
It’s almost time for the new school year to begin, which means welcoming brand-new veterinary students. Once again, we will hold a three-day VET orientation from Monday, Aug. 15, through Wednesday, Aug. 17. The goals of VET are to allow our new students to learn a bit more about the profession, the faculty, the CVM, their classmates, and themselves. Y
Center for Vector-borne and Emerging Infectious Diseases presents:
David M. Claborn, DPH
“The importance of baseline surveys in the study of vector populations: A statewide survey of Missouri vectors.”
Dr. Claborn is both professor and director of the Master of Public Health program at Missouri State University. In 2016, he began a multi-year surveillance study on mosquitoes in southern, central, and western Missouri. His work expanded to include tick surveillance.
In his presentation, a brief history of vector-borne disease in Missouri is given followed by a summary of vector surveillance prior to 2016. Key findings from his survey are summarized and analyzed as they apply to vector-borne risk in the state. Recommendations for the future conclude the talk.

Look for full details including session topics, the agenda, and accommodation information shortly. As in prior years, we will have a Friday afternoon session followed by a welcome reception, dinner, and speaker or panel at the Hampton Inn & Suites Columbia. Saturday will be an all-day event on campus at the MU Veterinary Medicine Building.
A block of rooms has been reserved at the Hampton Inn & Suites, make sure you tell them you are with GPID. Please note that the deadline for a discounted room rate of $129 per night is Oct. 21, 2022.
GPID is fortunate to have financial support from industry and academic partners allowing us to maintain free registration. If you would like to be a sponsor or have a suggestion of someone who might, please let us know.
We are working diligently to continue the great traditions of GPID by providing the latest cutting-edge science, great networking opportunities, and connections with old and new friends and collaborators.
