Goals
The Institute for Immunity, Transplantation and Infection at Stanford University is pleased to announce a call for proposals for seed grant funding to support groundbreaking studies in the general areas of immunity, transplantation, and infection. The Institute will give preference to grant applications that are interdisciplinary and that have a disease focus. We particularly wish to encourage proposals to 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 and other clinical samples.

Selection Process
Your proposals will be reviewed by an internal review committee. The review process is confidential. The applications will be selected for funding on the basis of their potential for stimulating new, interdisciplinary research in the general area of infectious diseases, transplantation, and/or immunology. Part of the evaluation for the seed grants will be an assessment of the likelihood that a research project will attract new or additional extramural funding.
