The UC Davis Microbiome Special Research Program and the Office of Research are pleased to announce the recipients of seven seed funding awards. Each awarded proposal will receive $40,000 over two years. The seed funding program is designed to catalyze new projects and innovations in microbiome sciences with an emphasis on new interdisciplinary collaborations within UC Davis.
“UC Davis already has an incredible array of microbiome research on campus,” said Jonathan Eisen, the director of the program and a professor in the Department of Evolution and Ecology in the College of Biological Sciences and the Department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology in the School of Medicine.
