The Office of International Affairs (OIA) has awarded six proposals seed grants for researchers seeking collaboration with partners from developing countries, providing up to $10,000 for travel support and living expenses for research groups.

These proposals ranged from Professor of Medicine Julie Parsonnet’s assessment of probiotics intervention in malnourished children in Bangladesh to Professor of Biology Elizabeth Hadly’s presentation of a consensus statement on maintaining life support to national-level politicians and policy makers.

In total, three of the selected proposals were from the School of Medicine, two from the School of Humanities and Sciences and one from the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies.

The next round of seed grants for international research will be offered in the fall.

Peter is currently a deputy desk editor and a freshman majoring in economics (anticipated). He enjoys soccer, basketball, and fitness.
