Supporting you - supporting your research
Agonists, antagonists, antibodies, fluorescent tools…but Hello Bio is more than a catalogue of life science tools. We are a team of researchers and scientists, who genuinely want to support and promote life science research. Everything we do has this at its heart – we strive to make our range as affordable as possible, we listen to what you want, and we contribute financially where we can, to travel awards, conferences and studentships.
Travel grants available now - it’s easy and quick to apply!
We are delighted to announce that every month we award a travel grant of $500.
There are no complicated rules or terms and conditions – you just need to be a post-graduate attending a relevant conference, and be able to tell us why you think you deserve it. However, to make it fair to all, there are a few requirements:
- you need to be a current post-graduate
- you must provide a detailed breakdown of what the money will be used for, and what funding (if any) you have already obtained. Things we are looking for are direct travel costs, or registration fees - not your beer supply for the week!
- and finally - after you have submitted your application, we will need a short statement from your supervisor / PI to confirm your application.
Assuming the above requirements are met, we will enter you into the monthly draw:
- One travel award will be allocated every month.
- A draw will be made on the first Thursday of each month – so just make sure your application is in before then.
- Winners will be notified immediately and announced monthly.
- If winners are presenting, we ask that you acknowledge Hello Bio's financial support on your poster, or in your communication, and send us a copy.
- You may enter each month but to be fair to all - if you win a travel award, you will not be eligible to enter again for a period of 12 months.
- As is usual with these sorts of things - we do reserve the right to change these terms and conditions at any time.
November 2017 Winner
Jennifer Martin is a PhD student in the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, working in David Dietz’s Lab at SUNY at Buffalo. She is researching how actin dynamics regulate opiate-induced behavioral and structural plasticity in the nucleus accumbens and the award will help to fund her trip to the 56th ACNP Annual Meeting 2017.
I am very excited to be selected as the recipient of the Hello Bio travel award to attend the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology annual meeting in Palm Spring, CA! This meeting will be very beneficial for my career, both scientifically and professionally. I will be able to get feedback during my poster presentation, attend panels, and make connections with top researchers in the field. Thank you Hello Bio for your support!
