Mayo Clinic & UWL Collaborative Seed Grant Program

A page within Research & Sponsored Programs

The purpose of the Mayo Clinic & UWL Collaborative Seed Grant Program is to provide funds for projects that stimulate collaboration and synergistic proposal development between Mayo Clinic & UWL investigators in areas of basic and applied research applicable to human health. Projects funded under this program should be well-designed and with clear milestones. It is the expectation that competitive proposals, based on studies funded by this program, will be subsequently submitted to extramural agencies or foundations for funding. Investigators from both institutions must participate in the development and execution of proposed projects.
