The Stanford Maternal and Child Health Research Institute (MCHRI) Transdisciplinary Initiatives Program aims to support, for up to 2 years of funding, new, innovative maternal and child health research programs that could best (or only) be performed by faculty from different disciplines, interdisciplinary curricular innovations, seminars and symposia. We encourage faculty from different schools to work together on these initiatives, and strongly promote collaborations between basic and physician scientists.
All projects must be significantly related to the health of expectant mothers and children . The initiative must utilize a multi-PI approach where at least two of these lead investigators are from different disciplines and schools.
