UConn Microbiome Research Seed Grants

The Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) is pleased to announce the UConn Microbiome Research Seed Grant program. In support of the Provost’s Academic Plan Award for the UConn Microbiome Initiative, the OVPR will provide $150,000 per year for 3 years to support innovative and collaborative research proposals that will lead to new proposals for extramural funding in microbiome research.

The program provides short-term (one year) seed funding to encourage novel research projects and spark fresh research collaborations with the goal of growing the capacity of microbiome research community to obtain federal research grants or generate intellectual property in the area of microbiome research.
