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 from Hello BioTravel 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 or post-doctoral researcher 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 or post-doctoral researcher
  • 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.

Good luck!

Travel Award Winner Kate O'NeillMay 2019 Winner

Kate is a postdoctoral researcher working at the University of Maryland College Park and is studying the role of the cytoskeleton in primary neurons and astrocytes. The award will help fund her trip to the European Glial Cells in Health and Disease meeting to present collaborative work on astrocytes.

I am so honored to receive travel support from Hello Bio to attend my first international conference! Traveling to an international conference is expensive, and this travel award will help to cover some of the fees associated with the European Glia Meeting in July. Attending this conference is an incredible career opportunity for me because I have recently started collaborating with a lab in Italy and will be attending this conference with them to learn more about the field of astrocyte physiology. .
