Seed Funding

The School of Public Health (SPH) provides funding to support pilot research conducted by eligible SPH faculty.

The goal of the program is to fund as many projects as possible. Activities such as conducting preliminary research to inform study design, demonstrating feasibility of research protocols, pilot testing novel methodologies, exploring translational research methods in public health (all fields), or initiating new interdisciplinary research are encouraged.
