BD Biosciences Research Grants

BD Biosciences grant submissions are reviewed by a distinguished panel of non-BD affiliated scientists representing a variety of research environments such as academia, the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, and clinical laboratories.


The judges review and base their selections upon an application's creativity, content, and innovation, including how the grant applicant proposes to use BD Biosciences reagents to further his or her research study's goals. Many have participated in the program for years and have found the experience to be both rewarding and educational.

According to Frederic Preffer, PhD, a member of the judging panel and Associate Professor of Pathology at Massachusetts General Hospital, “Selecting grant winners among the large pool of high-quality applicants is a very difficult, but an extremely rewarding process. Several of the winners are poised to make great contributions to science, and we look forward to the outcomes of their research.”
