Executive Summary

Truly innovative research comes with risk. Traditional NIH mechanisms and peer-review struggle to embrace risk, particularly with small seed grants. This initiative aims to establish a new program to fund small pilot projects via a streamlined process to support cutting-edge research and accelerate true innovation in areas of science of interest to the kidney, urology and hematology research communities.
