Instructor K Award Support

The Stanford Maternal and Child Health Research Institute (MCHRI) supports early career investigators who pursue an NIH K-award. The MCHRI recognizes that this NIH award series provides substantial salary support but limited research funding. It is the purpose of the MCHRI award to bolster this shortfall in research support to expand the number of future academic leaders in maternal and child health.
