M2M Microgrant: Application for M2M Fund Use by Research Themes

Award Limit: Up to $2000

The funds should support activities that further the strategic goals of Research Themes such as hosting visits by potential industrial partners or KOLs, co-hosting seminar speakers (apart from IALS series seminar speakers), travel of Research Theme members to sites of clinical or industrial collaborators (or vice versa), or facilitating internal meetings of Research Themes or across Research Themes. These are examples only, and other requests will be considered.

2017-2018 M2M-IALS Seed Grant Program: Application for Innovation Catalyst Fund

Award Limit: $10,000 minimum

The Innovation Catalyst Fund mechanism is intended to be an opportunity for M2M faculty to request larger amounts of funds and to tell us what you need to enable new collaborations, center-level proposal prepartion, large-scale new industry engagements, or other collaborative multi-PI funding opportunities.  We have partnered with IALS to free up large pools of seed funding to enable M2M faculty to embark on exciting and innovative new research areas, and we are open to all new ideas.
