2023 Seed Grants to Promote Translational Research
The Finn Foundation 2023 Seed Grants to Promote Translational Research Program aligns with the goals of the Arizona Bioscience Roadmap, specifically, its second goal: ”Research into Practice: Increase the ability of research-performing institutions to turn bench research results into improved disease/illness prevention, detection and treatment.”
The Flinn Foundation’s 2023 Seed Grants to Promote Translational Research Program will fund up to 10 Arizona-based research teams focused on advancing new products or services to improve patient care. The teams must be affiliated with Arizona’s academic research institutions and/or health-care systems. The goal for the projects is to improve disease/illness prevention, detection, and treatment - impacting patients here in Arizona and across the globe.
By the end of the 18-month grant period, supported teams would be expected to have significantly de-risked their product/process, refined their design and acquired key validation data taking account of updated stakeholder feedback. Critically the team should have also secured or have a well-defined plan to secure new sources of funding to carry their project forward and be well on their way to commercializing their product/process.
