Stanford Cardiovascular Institute Seed Grants

The Stanford Cardiovascular Institute mission is to ignite new research and clinical applications to improve cardiovascular health. We strive to promote the exchange of ideas and collaboration among students, fellows, faculty, and scientists.

In keeping with this mission, the CVI is offering a Fall call for Seed Grant Proposals. We strongly encourage proposals that emphasize interdisciplinary collaborations and incorporate diversity to better serve minority patients, conduct research identifying and overcoming disparities of care, and other innovative ideas.
