 (see proposal guidelines below for the *new* contact person)


Amount of funding:
$25,000 per team.

Purpose

The goal of these seed grants is to empower graduate students in Ph.D. and master degree programs and postdoctoral fellows to work with people in other research groups to develop collaborative systems biology projects. Proposals are ranked higher if they synergize with research topics of the Stanford Center for Systems Biology. Both methods development projects and more biology-centered projects are welcome. Please consult the website about current areas of research supported by the center (http://sysbio.stanford.edu/). 

A requirement is that the seed grant project is developed by students and postdocs and should not be a project already supported by or proposed as a faculty research grant. It is also required that team members actively participate in the Center's weekly meetings. Applicants also agree to give short presentations at the beginning and end of the project, respectively, and will write a two-page report at the end summarizing the outcome of the work.
