Each year, the Mittal Institute sponsors several visiting scientists to pursue research in fields related to the biosciences at Harvard University and other institutions in the Boston area. Working in university laboratories under the mentorship of top bioscience mentors and faculty, the visiting scientists have the opportunity to learn through hands-on experiences and bring back new techniques and knowledge to their home institutions.

Throughout the fellowship, the Mittal Institute organizes seminars at Harvard for visiting scientists to present and discuss their research with the broader community at Harvard and beyond.

Visiting scientists reside in the Cambridge vicinity and actively participate in the events and intellectual life of the Institute. Additionally, they contribute to the greater Harvard community by teaching, mentoring, or advising students.
