The Interstellar Initiative 2022-2023
The Interstellar Initiative recognizes the world’s most promising Early Career Investigators (ECIs) from around the world and connects them with peers in related but distinct disciplines to build international research collaborations that will address challenges in the area of basic research to elucidate the complex mechanisms of living organisms. During two workshops over 6 months, teams work together, guided by mentors and supported by modest funding from AMED, to develop proposals to submit to international funding agencies
- Application form (applicant demographics, scientific background, research experience, and area of Interest)
- Proposal (guidelines below)
- CV (optional)
Early Career Investigators must prepare a proposal (1000 words) that addresses the following:
Identify a critical research question in basic research, highlighting its importance and impact, and propose a research plan for how your expertise can address this question, including how you hope to improve this proposal through participation in the Interstellar Initiative.
