View this newsletter as displayed over email


Welcome to the biweekly electronic newsletter from Stanford Bio-X for members of the Bio-X Corporate Forum. The following are key links to the history of Bio-X and the Clark Center (hub of Bio-X): Bio-X Timeline, CLARK CENTER @ 10X, Celebrating the Clark Center, and President John Hennessy's article calling Bio-X and the Clark Center "A Cauldron of Innovation".


Special Highlight: VISITING SCHOLAR FELLOWSHIPS

Stanford Bio-X and the Novo Nordisk Foundation have a 3-round joint visiting scholar fellowship program that results in up to 2 exceptional Danish Visiting Scholars selected per round to be hosted and co-mentored by Stanford Bio-X affiliated faculty for 3 years each to conduct interdisciplinary research in the biosciences. This opportunity enhances the research experience and training of each visiting scholar at the highest international level, and also strengthens the exchange of scientific expertise between Stanford and Denmark before each scholar returns to Denmark. 

Click here to view the research abstracts of 4 selected scholars so far to this international fellowship. 


If you're interested in learning more about this collaboration and cultivating such opportunities with Bio-X, please contact Stanford Bio-X.
