U. awards $400k in seed grants to 7 profs

Abstract:
Professor of Biology David Rand, who applied for a grant to study nanoparticle toxicity in animals, would also not have been able to proceed without the seed fund program. Rand wrote in an e-mail to The Herald, "With a positive result from the seed fund project … we can put together a strong proposal to (the National Science Foundation). Without the seed fund results, such a proposal would be rejected as a 'fishing expedition.' So, the value of the seed funds is to allow us to carry out the 'fishing expedition' and deliver some tasty 'fish' to NSF … for serious multi-year funding."
