Research Category

Internal Deadline

Monday, August 23, 2021


Approved submissions will require an institutional letter of support. Because of this support requirement, this is an Institutionally Coordinated Submission. Only proposals selected through UA Competition Space will be authorized for submission.

The Flinn Foundation’s 2022 Seed Grants to Promote Translational Research Program will fund up to 10 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 awardees will each receive a $100,000 grant over 18 months. At the end of the grant period, up to two of the most successful projects may receive up to an additional $100,000 over the following year.

The 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.
