Larsson-Rosenquist Foundation Mother-Milk-Infant Center of Research Excellence announces 2019 MOMI Seeds awardees

Congratulations to the five researchers who received MOMI Seeds grants of USD 50,000 each from the Larsson-Rosenquist Foundation Mother-Milk-Infant Center of Research Excellence (LRF MOMI CORE), University of California San Diego to launch projects, generate critical data and gain novel insight into how breast milk impacts maternal-infant health.

This year’s recipients were selected from 16 applicants. They will investigate breast milk’s role in a range of contexts, such as whether it can protect us from the flu or reduce the rate of preterm births.

Now in its second year, the MOMI Seeds grant programme has received a total of 37 distinct project proposals, highlighting the intense interest in breast milk and human lactation research at the University of California San Diego.
