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.
July 2018 Winner
Marta Fernández is a Ph.D student working in Olga Peñagarikano's Lab at the University of the Basque Country, Spain. They are interested in understanding the neural circuits and molecular mechanisms that modulate social behavior and how dysfunction in these circuits leads to neuropsychiatric disorders such as autism. The award will help to fund her trip to SfN's 48th annual meeting in San Diego. Read more about Marta
Thanks Hello Bio for your support! As PhD student, I believe that data divulgation and attendance to scientific meetings are fundamental parts in the formation of junior researchers.This award is a great help for me. SfN is by far the best international meeting on neuroscience and it provides with an ideal environment for interacting with peer students working on similar subjects, and to meet personally the most relevant personalities in my field.

June 2018 Winner
Morgan Zipperly is a MD/PhD student working in Jeremy Day’s Lab at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. She studies the role of glutamatergic projections from the prefrontal cortex to the nucleus accumbens in motivated behavior and acute cocaine reward. This award will help to fund her trip to the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Cellular Biology of Addiction course at the University of Cambridge. Find out more about Morgan
I’m thrilled to receive this travel award, which will allow me to attend the CSHL Cellular Biology of Addiction course at Cambridge University, where I will be able to interact with and learn from international leaders in the field Morgan Zipperly, University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA, Hello Bio travel award winner
