CARE Seed Grant
Due to the generosity of our donors, from 2019-2022, CARE has awarded 25 seed gifts/grants to pioneering scientists across multiple disciplines (including in the fields of gastroenterology, ophthalmology, psychiatry, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and more) looking for early-stage funding to pursue research dedicated to improving Asian health. In 2021 and beyond, CARE intends to increase the numbers of gifts awarded on a progressive basis.
These grants have given CARE investigators the freedom to explore their most promising and creative research ideas, which nurture and expand Stanford Medicine's exceptional capacity for innovation. These funds are particularly helpful in promoting collaborations across disciplines and supporting young faculty, many of whom have no other means to investigate promising areas of study and to accumulate enough data in pilot studies to validate ideas and pursue additional funding.
This strategy has already, in various cases, launched new projects and allowed researchers to accumulate sufficient "proof of concept" data to apply successfully for follow-on funding, both in the form of additional philanthropic investment as well as from traditional funding sources such as the NIH.
