Life Sciences Research Foundation: Life Sciences Research Grants (early career)

The Life Sciences Research Foundation aims to identify and fund exceptional young scientists at a critical juncture of their training in all areas of basic life sciences.

The LSRF accepts proposals from those conducting basic biological research in all areas of life science. The broad categories covering life sciences include: Biochemistry, Cancer Biology, Cell Biology, Computational Biology, Developmental Biology, Immunology, Microbiology, Molecular Biology, Neurobiology, Organismal Population & Evolutionary Biology, Physiology, Plant Biology, Structural Biology, and Virology. LSRF does not have a focus beyond these broad categories.

Applicants must apply within 5 years of receiving their PhD (or MD/DVM whichever was awarded later) as of October 1, 2022. If you received your PhD (or MD/DVM) before October 1, 2017, you are not eligible to apply. You may apply before defending your thesis, but must have your PhD (or MD/DVM) degree by the time the award is activated on August 1st. You must have begun (or will begin) working in your proposed postdoc lab between August 1, 2021 and July 31, 2023.

Please contact Gwen Allouch if you are interested in applying to this opportunity.
