Maternal and Child Health Research Institute: The Stanford Maternal and Child Health Research Institute (MCHRI), in partnership with the Stanford School of Medicine, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, and Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health, provides support to faculty, clinical trainees, and postdoctoral fellows throughout the School of Medicine and across the Stanford University campus through a variety of funding mechanisms.
Physician Scientist Bridge To K: The Department of Pediatrics Physician-Scientist Bridge to K Program (B2K) is designed to provide talented, passionate physician scientists essential financial support and career development mentorship to bridge the years between fellowship training and an academic faculty position. This competitive program will provide funding for selected early career physician scientists to complete up to three years as an Instructor with 75% protected time for research. It is expected that participants in the program will submit an application for an NIH Career Development (K) Award or equivalent.
Stanford Seed Funding: A simplified search for seed and other forms of internal university funding that support the critical early stage work of Stanford faculty.
In the School of Medicine, proposals that postdoctoral fellows, clinical fellows, and instructors can apply for are considered Fellowships or Career Development Awards.
Fellowships provide funds to support research training of students or postdoctoral fellows, such as NIH NRSA F32 Fellowships. Fellowships are supported by RMG and require a Proposal Development Routing Form (PDRF).
Career Development Awards facilitate transitions to next career stages (usually an independent position), such as NIH K Awards (K01, K08, K23, K99/R00). Career Development Awards are supported by RMG and require a Proposal-In-Take Form (PIF).
