Chemical Biology 2021 is a project call within the thematic programme Life Sciences of the Vienna Science and Technology Fund (WWTF). It invites:

  • researchers and scientists at universities and non-university research institutions in Vienna, including those moving to Vienna;
  • who seek to conduct a cutting-edge research project (2 to 4 years) at the interface of chemistry and biology, using small molecules to understand and manipulate biological systems with molecular precision.
  • Proposals may include the development or application of new tools and techniques, and studies to probe mechanism, interaction or structure of biological macromolecules, compartments and systems.
  • Proposals do not have to include a translational aspect.
  • Proposals should bring together scientists from different scientific disciplines such as chemistry, biology, and related biomedical disciplines to foster interactive partnerships.

A total of € 4,5 million will be dedicated to this call. The funding range per project is € 200.000,-- to € 700.000,--.

This is a two-stage call. Short proposals must be submitted by 13th April 2021. Full proposals must be submitted, upon invitation, by 24th August 2021.

All interested parties are cordially invited to an online Proposers’ Day and Networking Event on 24th February 2021. Please check the Call fiche for further information.
