Award Date:
To support early-career investigators.

The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $1,170,000 to the Life Sciences Research Foundation to support early-career investigators. The funds will support six postdoctoral fellows for three years apiece. The fellows have proposed research projects investigating Alzheimer’s disease, infectious disease dynamics, forebrain development, cross-species transmission of bird flu, muscle stem cell function, and immune system evolution.

This grant follows Open Philanthropy's April 2018 support and falls within its work on scientific research, and specifically within its interest in advancing transformative basic science.
