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 two calls for Seed Grant Proposals in October. We strongly encourage proposals that emphasize interdisciplinary collaborations.
