The University of Helsinki has broad strengths in Life Sciences as exemplified by the themes presented here. HiLIFE enhances top research through excellence-only calls and stimulate new ideas at edges of fields to provide solution to  grand challenges in multidisciplinary collaborations.

The HiLIFE Fellows program aims to nurture excellence and increase interactions among researchers from different fields of life science. The Fellows will help in developing HiLIFE in its early steps. HiLIFE Research Programs are initiating in 2018.
