By working in the lab as a visiting scholar by a hosting Stanford Bio-X professor for a set period of time, collaborations are strengthened beyond the typical academic-industry collaboration. The direct one-on-one partnerships in the setting of world-class facilities at Stanford University allow for deeper engagement over mutual interests to develop novel and innovative research and technologies.
NOVO NORDISK FONDEN VISITING SCHOLAR FELLOWSHIPS @ STANFORD BIO-X
Through a relationship that started back in 2010 which led to a 2012 Novo Nordisk-sponsored research project, affiliate membership partnering with the University of Aarhus, and numerous in-depth conversations with Novo Nordisk Foundation's (NNF's) top executives, Stanford Bio-X has partnered with NNF since 2014 in establishing this joint visiting scholar (VS) fellowship program. The fellowship supports visiting scholars with a significant association to Denmark's academic or research environment to conduct postdoctoral-level research at Stanford for 3 years at a time before returning to their hosting Danish institution for their 4th and final year. The program is designed to strengthen the exchange of scientific expertise between Stanford and Denmark while also enhancing the scholars' research experience and training at the highest international level.
Each awarded VS fellow will be mentored by at least 2 Stanford Bio-X affiliated faculty while here at Stanford, and he/she will receive up to DKK 4,000,000 for the entire fellowship.
Currently, we are in the 4th round of Request for Proposals, with 6 scholars already successfully selected into the program. Click below for more information.
