MARCH 1: Stanford Bio-X Interdisciplinary Initiatives Seed Grants Program Symposium
Speakers included Drs. Ellen Kuhl, Bill Dally, Sarah Heilshorn, Frederick Chin, Merritt Maduke, and David Lentink. Afterwards, over 110 posters were presented from the Bio-X community during the reception. To learn more about the presented projects, please email through this link.
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.
The latest RFP has just ended. 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.
In his first four years at Stanford, Lloyd Minor has established the vision of precision health while also strengthening the ties within Stanford Medicine and promoting diversity.
