The International Human Frontier Science Program Organization (HFSPO) has selected 10 of its fellowship holders to receive the highly sought after Career Development Award (CDA). Following a rigorous selection in a global competition, the future for these young scientists could not be brighter as they receive the award worth $300,000 spread over three years to jump start their first independent laboratory.The CDA is a special feature of the HFSP postdoctoral fellowship programs allowing fellows the possibility to return to their home countries or to move to another HFSP member country after their research abroad. The 10 winners of the 2017 HFSP Career Development Award, their research institutions and research programs are:Anjana BADRINARAYANAN (India)National Centre for Biological Sciences, Bangalore, IndiaRegulation of error-prone DNA damage repair in bacteriaJérémie BARRAL (France)Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, FranceShedding light on the auditory pathway: from the cochlea to the brainPeter BIELING (Germany)Max Planck Institute for Molecular Physiology, Dortmund, GermanyThe systems biochemistry of cell polarity and cytoskeletal morphogenesisLars-Anders CARLSON (Sweden)Umeå University, Umeå, SwedenStructure and mechanism of (+)ssRNA virus replication complexesEmmanuel DERIVERY (France)MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge, UKEngineering synthetic asymmetric cell divisionJeffrey DONLEA (USA)University of California, Los Angeles, USAUsing Drosophila to investigate how sleep supports memory consolidationMaria Soledad ESPOSITO (Argentina)University of Buenos Aires / CONICET, Buenos Aires, ArgentinaBrainstem substrates for motor skill learningMatilde GALLI (Italy)Hubrecht Institute, Utrecht, The NetherlandsUnderstanding endomitosis: a common road to polyploidyMasayoshi NAKAMURA (Japan)Nagoya University, Nagoya, JapanElucidating mechanisms linking light perception to cytoskeletal organizationMatteo RAUZI (Italy/USA)Institut de Biologie Valrose / University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, Nice, FranceSubcellular properties and emerging embryo-scale mechanics driving morphogenesisFull lists of the 2017 HFSP awards are available at http://www.hfsp.org/awardees/newly-awarded
