Applications are opened to all scientists from Labena region – Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Montenegro. Scientists from academic and clinical institutions, pharma and other life-science industry and independent researchers are eligible to apply. We strongly support young scientists (PhD students and post-docs). The quality of application is the most important selection criteria to us. We support scientists that have a firm project plan and vision where the Labena 10x Grant could help them to fill in the missing gaps or push their research further.

If you are not sure, whether you are eligible, we encourage you to contact the application and sales support in your local Labena. They will be happy to help.

Applications will be assessed based on their scientific or diagnostic merit, relevance for the scientific and general public interest and the feasibility of the project to be performed within the given time and number of samples.

We will support projects on samples that originate from cell-culture or PBMCs, that have viability 85% or higher, require Single Cell 3’ chemistry and are available until mid-November 2022 the latest. The Labena 10x Grant will cover the costs of sequencing library preparation for 4 samples. Sequencing is performed by a third party; therefore, it is not covered in the Labena 10x Grant. Grant receiver can solely choose the NGS service provider.
