In particular, it seeks proposals that address new areas of pediatric and obstetric research, along with pressing issues in transplant tolerance, allergies, infectious diseases, autoimmunity, aging and new methods for analyzing blood samples and other clinical samples.

 Faculty members with principal-investigator status are eligible for $50,000 seed grants; postdoctoral scholars, clinical fellows, research associates and instructors are eligible for $25,000 seed grants.
