Grant Description

Grants of up to $50,000 to Georgia higher education faculty members at eligible institutions to stimulate new, collaborative research in immune system engineering and to encourage scientists and engineers from diverse fields to come together, ask important questions and solve important and transformative problems related to the immune system.

Each proposal must have a minimum of one investigator from Georgia Tech and one from Emory. Additional co-investigators from either institute are welcome. Funds may be used for Ph.D. student and postdoc support, animal studies, supplies, and limited travel as related to the conduct of the research. For Georgia Tech students supported on these funds, tuition will be waived.
