Building Bharat-Boston Biosciences (B4) Program


The B4 Program awards up to eight fellowships for 18 months in fields related to the biosciences at Harvard University and other Boston-area institutions. Each B4 Fellow is matched with a lab that focuses on a research topic within the biosciences, including Systems and Synthetic Biology, Neuroscience, Genomics and Bioinformatics, Soft Robotics, and Biomedical Engineering.

Fellows reside in Cambridge and actively participate in the events and intellectual life of the Mittal Institute, which organizes seminars at Harvard for fellows to discuss their research with the broader community. Additionally, fellows contribute to the Harvard community by teaching, mentoring, and advising students.

The fellowship is open to scholars who are Indian citizens and have completed their PhD within the last five years from an institution in India in a bioscience-related field. Exceptional senior doctoral students with demonstrable excellence in the field of their research may be considered.
