- Research Grants
Research Supported by FAPESP assembles referential information of scholarships and research grants from various research modalities, awarded by FAPESP.
Concerning projects carried out in research institutions abroad, FAPESP encourages granted researchers to develop collaborative research with renowned partner organizations from other countries, such as the institution abroad .
The display board "FAPESP Support in Numbers" presents the number of ongoing or concluded scholarships and research grants, awarded by the Foundation, in cooperation with the institution abroad Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL). In the center of the page, you will see some information on those awarded scholarships and research grants.
Use the "Refine results" list of options to filter information on awarded research in cooperation with the research institution abroad Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) and to get results that are more specific for your search, according to the following parameters: type of Research Grants, modalities of Scholarships, Field of Knowledge and Start Date.
The Maps and Graphs show the geographical distribution of FAPESP sponsorship in the State of São Paulo and the historical sequence of funded research, by year, of the ongoing projects from the cooperation with the research institution abroad Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL).
The expansion of intensive crop agriculture in tropical forests is a global phenomenon driven by land availability, shifts in diet to more meat consumption and growth of human populations and incomes. These land-use changes have not been accompanied by significant improvements in water governance. This will become increasingly important as changes to climate impact the amount, timing an...

Swimming and feeding are coupled features of Scyphozoa medusae. The contractions of the bell, which provide the forward motion, also produce flows towards the feeding surfaces at the oral arms and tentacles. Patterns of swimming vary among the scyphozoan groups. Rhizostomeae jellyfish are conspicuous components of tropical and subtropical coastal areas with distinguishable swimming patt...
The giant synapse and axons of squid (Loligo) represent an important classical model that has contributed to detailed mechanisms of axoplasmic flux and neural transmission. This neuronal system has also played a critical role in the long standing question of whether local mRNA processing and protein synthesis occur at the synapse. It is now known for both mammalian and invertebrate syst...
