Our Bridging Excellence Fellows

The Life Science Alliance is excited to present our very first cohort of Bridging Excellence Fellows!

Our fellowship program seeks to enable collaborative research and provide a platform for younger scientists to launch their international careers. These fellows are the catalysts for joint research endeavors between Stanford and EMBL, combining the best methods, resources and know-how for their cutting-edge research projects. Jana Helsen and Bernardo Rodriguez Martin will be starting their transatlantic projects later this year.
