SDB Puerto Rico Research Relief Grant

The Society for Developmental Biology is deeply concerned about the damage caused by Hurricanes Irma and Maria to the laboratories of our colleagues in Puerto Rico.  In order to facilitate the continuation of research programs in those labs or at another temporary host location, SDB is offering relief grants of up to $10,000 to each lab.  Funds may be used for replacement of organisms, reagents, supplies, travel to host lab by PI or his/her trainees, core facility usage fees at host institution, etc.  For questions, please contact Ida Chow at  

Eligibility:  Principal investigators (PIs) at institutions located in Puerto Rico who are currently conducting research projects in developmental biology.  Priority will be given to PIs who are current SDB members.  The PIs may request support for travel to host lab for themselves, as well as for their trainees (students and postdocs) who are active participants in the project. 

Deadline:  As soon as possible, no later than December 31, 2017.  Proposals must be submitted as one complete PDF attachment to, and they will be reviewed as they are received.
