For the past thirteen years, the Friends of Doernbecher have funded a grant program that awards $100,000 annually to Doernbecher faculty or staff to pursue research or develop projects and programs at the hospital. In many cases, this kind of initial funding provides seed money to get projects underway and provides a platform and track record, which will assist in securing longer-term funding from the NIH or other sources.
