Dunn Foundation gives Rice $3M for collaborative research grants
Date:10/2/2008

The John S. Dunn Research Foundation has awarded a $3 million grant to Rice University to "jump-start" collaborative research studies in biomedical science that have the potential for clinical applications.

The funds will support seed grants for Rice researchers whose studies will be conducted at the Collaborative Research Center (CRC) that Rice is building on the corner of University Boulevard and Main Street. To qualify for a seed grant, the researcher must collaborate with scientists or physicians from other institutions in the Texas Medical Center.

"The underlying purpose of the Collaborative Research Center is to bring Rice scientists together with our colleagues in the medical center so they can work across disciplines in conducting the research necessary to achieve fundamental breakthroughs in the biosciences," said Rice President David Leebron. "This generous grant from the John S. Dunn Research Foundation will help us achieve that goal. The new ideas that take root from these seed grants could lead to major discoveries that ultimately result in life-saving breakthroughs in health and medical care."

The first round of seed grants will be limited to cross-institutional teams of researchers within the CRC who have not collaborated previously and whose work shows potential for clinical use in the near future.

"A wise investor seeks long-term growth, and that's what we hope to achieve through our investment in seed grants to Rice that encourage collaboration among highly competitive scientists and physicians in the Texas Medical Center," said Charles W. Hall, president of the John S. Dunn Research Foundation. "Ideally, by sharing expertise and costly technology, the recipients of these research grants will discover treatments and design devices that benefit health care and science for many decades to come."
