We have a very international lab, and students obtain funding from their home institutions, national governments, international agencies or other sources. We are happy to work with students to develop project applications where appropriate.
Always see our lab website www.molcyt.com and contact me to discuss projects and funding by e-mail ([Email Address Removed]) before making a formal application
