Designed to stimulate interdisciplinary research between world-class researchers, the Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience proudly supports seed grant programs that provide funding opportunities that serve as a catalyst for bio-related breakthroughs.

IBB Interdisciplinary Research Seed Grant Program

The goal of the IBB Seed Grant Program is to stimulate new interdisciplinary research collaborations between IBB investigators. Seed grant opportunities:

  • Collaborative Seed Grants - Proposal submissions should represent a new collaborative research project. Two co-principal investigators from different colleges are required and both must be IBB faculty members. Primary faculty members are those who hold regular appointments at Georgia Tech. Priority is given to teams who have never worked together before. See info on FY24 seed grant submission - deadline Sunday, May 21, 2023
  • Core Facility Seed Grants - IBB Seed Grants for Core Facilities was created to give investigators an opportunity to expand their usage of IBB core facility equipment and to make grant proposals more competitive. Only one IBB investigator is required per application. Core facility seed grants are intended to be limited in scope and primarily for the collection of preliminary data that would be included in a grant proposal to be submitted within the next 6 months. Core facilities seed grants are only available to investigators that currently have no other means to pay the core facilities charges associated with the requested use. Consumables are not covered by the seed grants, only hourly core facilities charges. See more info on rolling submissions.
