Biological & Physical Sciences

FCC supports University of Chicago faculty members in the Physical and Biological Sciences primarily by providing seed-funding grants to conduct collaborative transatlantic research through the FACCTS Program.

FCC also provides support to BSD and PSD faculty throught the Collège de France initiative, which:

  • provides funding to invite faculty colleagues from the Collège de France* to the University of Chicago for periods of time ranging from 8-15 days. Contact Dan Bertsche (ddb1@uchicago.edu, or 2-3662) for more information
  • provides travel grants ($6000/quarter) both to help support advanced graduate students in their labs who conduct research in the lab of a faculty colleague at the Collège de France, and to help support Collège de France students or post-docs who are working in their lab
