DCM BIOMARKER GRANT APPLICATION

“I am delighted to report that the Grant has approval.
 We will now be working with the University to formulate procedures, documentation to establish an audit trail of Test Results and Financial Records required for such an undertaking. Once we have completed this we will make a further announcement with specific details on how the scheme will be run”.
First of all we wish to address the parties who have made assertions, innuendo and misinformation both verbally and in writing in an attempt to derail all the effort, generosity and hard work that has been done. We respectfully suggest to the groups and individuals who have been partied to this, to re-evaluate their position and consider the bigger picture with the benefit of the Dobermann in mind.
We can now confirm that The Kennel Club Charitable Trust’s grant has been sent to the University of Liverpool. Dr Dukes McEwan is on vacation at the moment, on her return a further announcement will be made as soon possible on how to apply to participate in this research project.
Our contribution of £12700 will now be made this includes the £3383.07 transferred from the DBC Health Fund made by the remaining clubs committee’s at deregistration as per DBC rule11f. It was also agreed to transfer the balance £339.15 in the DBC Operating A/c into the working party Operating A/c.
Details of the NICE approved tests referred to in the previous postings, very interesting to note this is a Biomarker Test similar to that we are about to embark on for DCM.

I attended a meeting regarding the above Grant Application on the 21/10/2014 at the University of Liverpool Small Animal Teaching Hospital - School of Veterinary Science with Mike Townsend Chairman of Trustees KCCT, Steve Dean KC Chairman and Dr Jo Dukes McEwan Senior Lecturer in Veterinary Cardiology.

I am delighted to report that the Grant has approval.

We will now be working with the University to formulate procedures, documentation to establish an audit trail of Test Results and Financial Records required for such an undertaking. Once we have completed this we will make a further announcement with specific details on how the scheme will be run.

I would thank everyone who after the demise of the Dobermann Breed Council that have supported and embraced our efforts to work for the benefit of our breed, it is very humbling.
