The Human Frontier Science Program awarded Michael Kohl and team for their "Integrated multi-level investigation of neural codes in sensory processing".

The Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) is an international program of research support implemented by the International Human Frontier Science Program Organization (HFSPO) based in Strasbourg, France. Its aims are to promote intercontinental collaboration and training in cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research focused on the life sciences. HFSPO receives financial support from the governments or research councils of Australia, Canada, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, Switzerland, UK, USA, as well as from the European Union.

The HFSP awarded Dr Michael Kohl and team for their "Integrated multi-level investigation of neural codes in sensory processing".

The HFSPO is awarding about $35 million to the 31 winning teams of the 2015 competition for the HFSP Research Grants. In 2015, 10 Young Investigator Grants and 21 Program Grants were awarded from a total of over 1000 letters of intent, 82 of which were selected for full application.

HFSP collaborative research grants are given for a broad range of projects under the umbrella theme of “Complex mechanisms of living organisms”. Particular emphasis is placed on cutting-edge, risky projects.
