The HFSP fellowship program funds innovative, ground-breaking projects that have the potential to advance knowledge in the applicants’ field of study or open a new approach to a research problem. High risk research is supported.
Cross-disciplinary fellowships are intended for postdoctoral fellows with a degree from outside the life sciences (e.g. physical sciences, chemistry, mathematics, engineering or computer sciences) who wish to receive training in biology. Fellows receive 3 years of support to obtain training in an outstanding laboratory of their choice in another country. Applicants for this fellowship are expected to move into a new research field through a significant change in discipline.
