Crowdfunding website with child health focus launched by Sheikh Zayed Institute

The Sheikh Zayed Institute recently launched the first child health focused crowdfunding website. The website,, gives the general public access to directly support any of the four featured research projects. This pediatric crowdfunding program is designed as a pilot project to gauge both the need for additional funding sources from investigators and the interest of the general public in supporting specific research aimed at helping children.

“We know that government and philanthropic research funding is more competitive than ever before,” said Floortje Blindenbach-Driessen, PhD, head of the crowdfunding initiative. “We also know through our institute’s focus on pediatric innovation that there are many, many good project ideas out there that are either too small to qualify for that funding or need additional assistance to begin.”
