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 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.

Good luck!

Nicola Corbett, Hello Bio travel award winner

June 2017 Winner

Nicola Corbett is a Research associate working in Professor Nigel Hooper’s Lab at the University of Manchester. She is researching the signalling pathway of soluble amyloid precursor protein α, and its effects on the synapses of iPSC-derived neurons, and the award will help to fund her trip to SfN’s 47th annual meeting, Neuroscience 2017.

Thank you, Hello Bio for this travel award. I am very much looking forward to using it to go to SfN 2017 in Washington, D.C. This year’s meeting is quite an important one for me as it will be the first time that I will be presenting my data in a nanosymposium! I have always enjoyed attending SfN, and so having the support from Hello Bio to get there is fantastic! Nicola Corbett, University of Manchester, UK, Hello Bio travel award winner
