1.  Information and guidelines for 2013 Research Grants are now available

The 2013 competition (applications in March 2012 for awards to be announced in March 2013) is now open. Information and guidelines for Program Grants and Young Investigator Grants are now available on the HFSP website. The online application forms will be available around mid-January.

2. Major Prizes for HFSP Alumni

HFSP Alumni continue to excel as evidenced by major prizes. In 2011, Jules Hoffmann and Ralph Steinman were awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine. This brings the number of HFSP alumni who went on to win the Nobel Prize to 18 in the 22 years since the establishment of HFSP.

More news about awards to the HFSP community are available in the News Archive.

3. New Newsletter coming in 2012

We are designing a new style newsletter for distribution to all HFSP alumni and those who have subscribed to this newsletter. This will be issued quarterly and will summarise recent material on the HFSP website with additional items. The new newsletter will replace this text-based alert.
