The Flinn Foundation’s Seed Grants to Promote Translational Research Program funds up to 10 research teams affiliated with an Arizona university, research institution, or health-care system that are focused on advancing new products or services to improve patient care. Awardees each receive a $100,000 grant over 18 months.
Proposed projects must address compelling clinical needs in the areas of precision medicine, diagnostics, devices, therapeutics, or health-care-delivery processes and have significant potential to turn bench results into viable products or systems impacting patients in Arizona and beyond.
