Teva's BioInnovation Fellowship & Mentorship Program
Deadline for submission: Nov. 6, 2022
Teva's National BioInnovators Forum is a unique program that includes an annual scholarship, mentoring and guidance of professionals from Teva and the bio-ecosystem.
The purpose of the program is to support and promote the translational aspects of biological therapies between academia and industry and to advance entrepreneurship in the biomed field.
The $10,000 scholarships for the academic year will be awarded on the basis of excellence in studies and scientific research and are intended for doctoral students and post-doctoral trainees whose research deals with the following areas:
Areas of scientific focus for 2022-23
• Novel molecular targets/novel molecules/biomarkers in CNS and PNS; novel pathways and
mechanisms in brain disorders, e.g. neurodegeneration, neuromuscular disorders, psychiatric
disorders, rare disorders with CNS phenotype and pain.
• Mechanisms for delivering proteins and specifically antibodies to the brain and advanced
monitoring/imaging of BBB crossing.
New targets and mechanisms for Immuno-modulation relevant for cancer, autoimmune, inflammation,
and respiratory diseases.
Protein engineering and computational modeling technologies.
Drug delivery systems for protein-based drugs, e.g. nanoparticles or exosomes.
mRNA based therapy.
Novel methods to characterize and predict biologics-based drug adverse reactions like immunogenicity.
AI and big-data tools and approaches for proteins structure-function prediction, antibody affinity,
immunogenicity, antibody optimization etc.
Digital biomarkers, sensors and wearables for monitoring brain disorders.
