Chemical Biology

Chemical Biology 2017 is the 10th project call within the Vienna Science and Technology Fund (WWTF) Life Sciences Programme. It invites researchers and scientists at universities and non-university research institutions in Vienna, including those moving to Vienna, who want to conduct a cutting-edge research project (2 to 4 years) at the chemistry-biology interface using small molecules to understand and manipulate biological systems with molecular precision.

Proposals may include mechanistic studies, development of new chemical or biological tools/techniques, and applied molecular studies (biological and medical).

Proposals do not have to include a translational aspect.

Proposals should bring together scientists from different scientific disciplines such as chemistry, biological and related biomedical disciplines to foster interactive partnerships across Vienna.

A total of 4.5 million Euro will be dedicated to this call. The funding range per project is 200,000 to 700,000 Euro.

This is a two stage call:

Short proposals have to be submitted by 270417.

Full proposals have to be submitted by 180817.
