ISSNAF supports the professional growth of outstanding early career researchers in Italy. 


ISSNAF coordinates with Italian and North American institutions to set up and manage research fellowships.  Selected researchers will spend one or more years at a research institution in North America.  These experiences benefit both visiting researchers and hosting institutions, professionally and culturally.

These fellowships are named after their generous sponsors.



Notable Young ISSNAF Fellowships

  • Premio Fulvio Bracco: two-year Fellowship at a Bracco Research Center in USA

  • Fondazione Marche: ten two-year Postdoctoral Fellowship in Molecular Biology at major North American universities
