Developed by the International Society for Research in Human Milk and Lactation (ISRHML) and the Family Larsson-Rosenquist Foundation (FLRF), TEP is an international early career expansion program. TEP grants are for ISRHML members who are graduate students, recently graduated students, postdoctoral fellows, early career scientists, and clinicians or those who have recently completed professional training to participate in short- and long-term research-related activities in the field of human milk and lactation.

Our goal is to cultivate and promote trainee talent and the skills necessary for academic and career development in human milk and lactation. We aim to provide trainees with unique opportunities, such as:

  • working in a different lab, discipline or country to learn new techniques and gain new perspectives
  • moving into the field of human milk and lactation
  • making their research more widely applicable
  • developing an interdisciplinary and international scientific network
  • transcending cultural or language barriers
  • exchanging and sharing ideas and experiences among fellow students and host institutions 

We are aware that some Trainee Travel Fund (TTF) or Trainee Bridge Fund (TBF) projects will be delayed or postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. TEP will consider extending the grant period provided awardees submit a short letter outlining the specific situation to [email protected].

We are proud to be pioneers in developing and administering a program for talented young scientists focused on human milk and lactation. We look forward to receiving applications from interested and eligible candidates through 1 October 2022.
