EMBO New Venture Fellowship



In memory of a bright-minded and passionate scientist, the EMBO New Venture Fellowship will help early career scientists explore topics outside their current area to allow them to pursue a new research direction in their future work.

Suzanne Eaton was an internationally acclaimed scientist, known for her contribution to cell signalling, tissue mechanics and, more recently, regulation of metabolism during development, and mathematical modelling.She was actively engaged in multi-disciplinary research and encouraged others to overcome the challenges of entering a new field for the benefit of intellectual and scientific advancement.

With the desire of many to honour Suzanne as a scientist, mentor, and friend, a fund was established in her memory. These funds can now be invested in science, in Suzanne’s honor. Donations to the Suzanne Eaton Memorial Fund continue to be gratefully accepted at: https://​www​.bet​ter​place​.org/​e​n​/​p​r​o​j​e​c​t​s​/​7​1​7​8​0​-​s​u​z​a​n​n​e​-​e​a​t​o​n​-fund.


Applicants must be active researchers with a minimum of 2 years’ research experience at the PhD level, and no more than 2 years’ experience as an independent group leader.
