Life Sciences - HFSP Research grants 2019

The Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) invites applications for its Research grants 2019. Deadline for submitting a Letter of Intent is March 28, 2018. Deadline to obtain a 2019 reference number is March 19, 2018. There are two types of grants available: Young Investigators' Grants and Program Grants. Funding is up to $ 450,000 per year for the whole team depending on the size of the team. Each grant is awarded for a period of three years.

Young Investigators' Grants are awarded to teams of researchers, all of whom are within the first five years after obtaining an independent laboratory (e.g. Assistant Professor, Lecturer or equivalent). Applications for Young Investigators' Grants will be reviewed in competition with each other independently of applications for Program Grants.


Program Grants are awarded to teams of independent researchers at any stage of their careers. The research team is expected to develop new lines of research through the collaboration. Applications including independent investigators early in their careers are encouraged.


Research grants are provided for teams of scientists from different countries who wish to combine their expertise in innovative approaches to questions that could not be answered by individual laboratories. Emphasis is placed on novel collaborations that bring together scientists preferably from different disciplines (e.g. from chemistry, physics, computer science, engineering) to focus on problems in the life sciences. The research teams must be international. The principal applicant must be from one of the eligible countries. However, other participating scientists and laboratories may be situated anywhere in the world.
