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.
April 2018 Winner
Ayse Özge Sungur is a researcher working in Professor Schwarting’s Lab at Philipps-University of Marburg in Germany. She is researching genetic mouse models for neurodevelopmental disorders, and the award will help to fund her trip to EBBS satellite meeting at FENS in Berlin
I am truly grateful for being selected as a Hello Bio travel award winner. Having this grant will help me attend the EBBS satellite meeting at FENS and share my research with the neuroscience community. I am very excited to meet the experts in the field, hear their feedback, and keep up with the cutting-edge discoveries. I am also glad that I came across Hello Bio at one such conference and heard about this award. Thank you for your generous support, Hello Bio!.
