MoMI Seeds

MoMI Seeds is a pilot project seed funding mechanism with the goal to stimulate and enable innovative and multidisciplinary research that generates promising new data and helps facilitate the acquisition of extramural funding in support of human milk and lactation research across UC San Diego and beyond.
