We are pleased to announce the 16 new USIAS Fellows selected in the 2021 call. Their projects cover a broad range of topics, including the role of poetry in medieval China, new ways of studying ice sheets with seismological technology, the role of immune cells in metabolic activity, breaking the barriers of studying super heavy elements, and the role of neural plasticity in the emergence of new species.

Additional support from the USIAS Chairs made it possible to fund 14 projects in all, including two joint projects with two awardees.
