The MWRI-PSB Collaborative Research Seed Grant Charter was established to promote collaboration between investigators of Magee-Womens Research Institute (MWRI) and Penn State Behrend (PSB). These funds are designed to provide short-term funding of a pilot project or to fund a new direction of an existing project that will lead to competitive applications for externally-sponsored grants.
This year’s grants were generously funded by a donation from Heather and Greg Yahn.
