• To identify and fund exceptional young scientists at a critical juncture of their training in all areas of basic life sciences.
• To provide a high-quality peer-review service to anyone (individual, company, foundation) wishing to sponsor a fellow who shares their vision of important research.
We at the Life Sciences Research Foundation (LSRF) believe that seminal advances in life sciences depend upon the training and support of the highest quality young scientists when they are embarking on exciting and adventuresome research as postdoctoral fellows. To promote this vision we partner the best young scientists with diverse sponsors who share common interests.
