[Closes 28 March 2018] HFSP 2019 Research Grant

HUMAN FRONTIER SCIENCE PROGRAM (HFSP) supports international preferably intercontinental collaborations in basic life science research. Applications are invited for grants to support innovative approaches to understanding complex mechanisms of living organisms. Applicants are expected to develop novel lines of research distinct from their ongoing research. Preliminary results are not required.

Program Grants are for independent scientists at all stages of their careers while Young Investigators’ Grants are for teams of scientists who are all within 5 years of establishing an independent laboratory and within 10 years of obtaining their PhDs. Both provide 3 years support for 2 – 4 member teams, with not more than one member from any one country, unless critical for the innovative nature of the project. Awards are dependent upon team size and successful teams will receive up to $450,000 per year. The principal applicant must be located in one of the HFSP member countries but co-investigators may be located in any country. Please read the guidelines on the HFSP web site ( Teams must initiate an application via the website by March 19, 2018 so as to submit a letter of intent online by the March 28, 2018 deadline.
