Abstract of the presentation by Dr. Geoff RICHARDS:
HFSP (the Human Frontier Science Program) was established in 1989 so as to encourage innovative international collaboration in the life sciences. An emphasis is made on combining widely different expertise to understand fundamental biological mechanisms. These mechanisms can range from the finest molecular details of cellular structure to complex interactions in systems neuroscience. In the frontier science supported by HFSP, the biology is increasingly quantitative with contributions from computational biologists and biophysicists although other contributions from the physical sciences are also common.In this talk we will discuss the HFSP collaborative Research Grants, explaining the common errors in applications and the kind of project that is likely to win support. Successful teams take a ‘new look’ and bring novel ideas from different disciplines and scientific cultures together to solve a problem. We will also introduce the HFSP Postdoctoral Fellowships to support young researchers.
