Stony Brook Medicine and Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai have announced a Seed Grant program designed to support highly meritorious and innovative research focusing on biomedical discovery, health, and the community. Several $20,000-100,000 awards will be funded over one or two years. Awardees will utilize these funds to support interdisciplinary, basic and applied research, and/or community-based research with the potential to advance health, add value to clinically-relevant diagnostic and therapeutic technologies, or to facilitate development of commercially-promising biomedical intellectual property. Requests to support joint faculty meetings and small group retreats will also be considered.
Application deadline for the first cycle is by the close of the business day on Friday December 9, 2016 with funding to commence in February 2017.
There will be a second cycle within 6 months or 1 year as the program team gauges demand.
