LPCH Academic Grant Program

Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital provides an annual academic grant to the School of Medicine to augment seed grant programs focused specifically on child and maternal health. With oversight of the Stanford Maternal and Child Health Research Institute (MCHRI), these grant funds are directed to each of the Stanford Institutes of Medicine (SIMs) and SPARK to promote research related to child and maternal health.

LPCH Academic Grant funds are used for seed grants to faculty that initiate new areas of pediatric and obstetric related research. The review and selection process is competitive, based on criteria consistent with grants administration for each of the SIMs and SPARK. For further information, administrative contacts are listed below.
