SPIE-Hillenkamp Application Process

Hillenkamp Application Process

The SPIE-Franz Hillenkamp Fellowship provides an award of US$75,000 to translate new biomedical optics and biophotonics technologies to clinical practice for improving human health.

Young investigators with a PhD, MD, or equivalent degree are eligible to apply. There are no restrictions on geographical location; however, applicants and hosting labs must propose original research in biomedical optics that is expected to lead to new diagnostics and/or therapeutics in medicine and biology.

The application cycle for the year-long 2022 fellowship is now open.
