Grant proposals sought for research in immunity, transplantation, infection

Grant applications are now being accepted for innovative research in the areas of immunity, transplantation and infection.

Seeds grants of $50,000 will be made to selected faculty projects. Young investigator awards of $25,000 will go to selected projects led by Stanford postdoctoral scholars, clinical fellows, research associates and instructors.

The School of Medicine's Institute for Immunity, Transplantation and Infection, which is overseeing the selection process, will give preference to interdisciplinary projects and those that have a disease focus. Applicants are encouraged to address critical questions in the key areas of pediatrics and obstetrics, sarcoidosis, transplant tolerance, allergies, infectious diseases, autoimmunity, aging and new methods of analyzing blood and other clinical samples.

Faculty applicants should hold university, research or medical-center-line positions, and an active collaboration between two or more faculty members from different disciplines is required for proposals. Collaborations between basic and physician scientists are especially encouraged.

The submission deadline for grant proposals is 5:30 p.m. April 30. For more information, visit http://med.stanford.edu/rmg/funding/iti_interdisc.html or contact Michele King at mking@stanford.edu or 723-3084.

Stanford Medicine integrates research, medical education and patient care at its three institutions - Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford Hospital & Clinics and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford.
