The California Table Grape Commission is pleased to announce its request for Letters of Intent to submit a proposal for its 2017-2018 Health Research Grant Program. The deadline for submission of Letters of Intent is November, 30, 2016. Examples of relevant research areas include, but are not limited to:
- Examining the impact of grape consumption (via grape powder) on prevention of heart disease, skin diseases, all cancers, nerve and brain disorders, metabolic syndrome, macular degeneration, arthritis, diabetes or other chronic diseases
- Investigating the effects of grape consumption on eye health, GI health, and glucose and fat metabolism
- Determining the effect of grape consumption on the activity of known disease-causing agents
- Evaluating the effects of grape consumption on risk factors and subclinical markers of disease in small human or animal studies
This year we will be reviewing Letters of Intent for $30,000 grants that may be applied toward any relevant health issue in which grape consumption may have a beneficial impact.
