HiLIFE Fel­lows and Ten­ure track pro­fess­ors

The HiLIFE Fellows Program nurtures excellence and increases interactions in the area of life sciences. The HiLIFE Fellows program provides strategic competitive research support and integrates strengths across the life science campuses. HiLIFE Fellows represent outstanding life science area principal investigators at the University and are instrumental in developing HiLIFE in its early days.

Current Fellows have been selected from the 2017 Fellows call, from recipients of life science ERC grants starting in 2017 at the University of Helsinki, and from faculty recruits made from applicants to the 2016 HiLIFE Tenure Track Assistant/Associate Professor call.
