Catalyst Funds

Accelerating discovery

High-risk, high-reward research enables innovative scientific advances.

Established in 2016, the Catalyst Fund program provides time-limited seed funding for new projects to accelerate ideas and collaborations between program members. The funds allow fellows to explore new ideas and launch potentially revolutionary projects that may not have access to other funding sources.

Catalyst funds are open to all program members and must emphasize an interdisciplinary and collaborative approach to addressing a research problem, but are otherwise unlimited in scope and potential.
