HPAI Research Proposals are Welcome

Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza continues to infect a wide range of animals from birds to sea mammals to cattle. The virus has spread to dairy cattle and farm workers, and more HPAI research is needed to enhance surveillance and response capabilities.

The Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research has a program called Rapid Outcomes from Agricultural Research, or ROAR. The program awards research grants in response to emerging and unanticipated food and agriculture threats. The ROAR Program welcomes research proposals related to HPAI response, prevention, or mitigation.

The agriculture industry urgently needs research to understand the recent transmission of HPAI into dairy cattle and to develop effective solutions to protect livestock, producer bottom lines, and America’s food supply. FFAR is interested in research to inform HPAI response, prevention, or mitigation, including work on HPAI pathogenesis, transmission, and biosecurity enhancements on dairies. The ROAR webpage includes more information on program requirements.
