Funding opportunities

We support innovative ideas at very early or later stages of the research and development process.
The Cornell Institute of Biotechnology administers two grant programs:

  • Seed grants - If you are experimenting with something entirely new. Seed grants are aimed to help researchers use the BRC facilities to generate preliminary data and apply for extramural funding. The grants are also intended to encourage Cornell life science researchers to expand the repertoire of biotechnologies they use in their research program.
  • CAT grants - If you have an idea for a product for the market. CAT grants are awarded to develop life science technologies with a potential for commercialization.
  • GIH seed grants - funding to pursue projects that focus on development and/or utilization of cutting-edge genomics applications for research.

Additional imtramural funding programs that may be of interest include several programs from the Center for Veterbrate Genomics (CVG).
