One of many ways USF Health continually supports faculty research is through seed grants. The USF Health Women’s Health Collaborative has announced its 2015 seed grants for research on women’s health topics, and five College of Public Health professors are among the 10 recipients.

The collaborative awards the grants on merit based on reviews of applications.  Guidelines stress interdisciplinary teams and senior mentoring of junior faculty.  The grants are not limited to USF Health professors, but by virtue of their multidisciplinary nature, are open to all USF professors.

The five COPH professors awarded seed grants for 2015 are listed below, along with their topic areas. (Dr. Cheryl A. Vamos received two awards.)
