The Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) invites applications for seed grant funding for its Fall 2021 cycle.
The purpose of this program is to provide funding for innovative projects in the field of stem cell and regenerative biology that are a collaboration between two labs. HSCI strongly encourages proposals with a translational focus, or which are otherwise poised to accelerate the development of new stem cell-based therapies or cures. However, proposals at all stages of development are welcome. The HSCI intends to award up to five grants in response to this call for proposals, contingent upon the number and quality of the proposals received, as well as the availability of HSCI funds....
