Funding Tomorrow’s Biopharma Pioneers

The CASSS Frantisek Svec Fellowship for Innovative Studies was created in 2016 to encourage innovative learning opportunities in biopharmaceutical science and technology – and help nurture future leaders in the field.

The first two recipients – Daniela Espinosa-Hoyos and Bert Wouters – have big plans for the funds. Espinosa-Hoyos of Cambridge, USA, will train at The New York Stem Cell Foundation Laboratory, while Wouters, of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, will use his Svec Fellowship for a one-month research stay at the University of Tasmania to work with Brett Paull and Michael Breadmore on 3D printing in analytical chemistry. “I greatly admire how CASSS supports young researchers around the globe, and I will do my very best to make the most out of this research stay,” said Wouters.

Applications for the 2018 Svec Fellowship are due by December 31, 2017 and funds will be awarded in the first quarter of 2018. For more information, please visit

Beyond the Svec Fellowship, CASSS offers a range of grants for students and postdocs, including a Travel Grant program to help students connect to industry. The program provides reimbursement of travel costs to students who present oral or poster presentations at any CASSS scientific meeting. Plus, CASSS will waive conference registration fees.

Applications are accepted year-round, from students and postdoctoral researchers worldwide. For more details, visit
