Stanley Manne Children’s Research Institute is happy to announce the Winter 2018 Internal Grant Award (IGA) recipients. Merged funds from various institutional and foundation sources will provide one year of research funding to Lurie Children’s investigators so that they can develop projects that will lead to highly competitive extramural applications for sustained research support.
