MoMI Seeds

MoMI Seeds is a pilot project seed funding mechanism with the goal to stimulate and enable innovative and multidisciplinary research that generates promising new data and helps facilitate the acquisition of extramural funding in support of human milk and lactation research across UC San Diego and beyond. 

Areas of Research

Our goal is to support creative ideas for research that improves our understanding in two broad areas:

  1. Why and how human milk and lactation contribute to health and development across the lifespan
  2. How best to translate relevant research findings into clinical practice and improve public health

Specific research topic priorities will be assigned for each application cycle.

Eligibility and Selection Criteria

UC San Diego faculty and postdoctoral fellows are eligible to apply.

Applications will be evaluated based on scientific merit as well as:

  • Relevance to human milk and lactation and annual research topic priorities
  • Innovation
  • Feasibility
  • Research approach: study design, analytical and statistical methods
  • Novelty of research collaborations (new collaborations across research disciplines are encouraged)
  • Potential for future extramural funding

Research topic priorities, application due dates, forms, and more details will be announced shortly.

MoMI Seeds are supported by the Larsson-Rosenquist Foundation Research and Collaboration Fund.
