In the spirit of Marie Curie, I truly believe that in order to improve the world we need to start with improving individuals. To shape modern science, researchers should get the best training and career prospects they deserve. Personal research grants, such as those provided by Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions of European Commission, are an amazing opportunity for researchers to steer their careers in the right direction.

My name is Yuliya Shakalisava, and I am a Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellow focusing my research on microscale bioseparations. I have 17 years of experience navigating through the research and academic world as a researcher, lecturer, funding adviser, grant writer and evaluator. I am genuinely passionate about sharing my experience to help others succeed in science. I love presenting research ideas in the most powerful, logical and convincing way whether it is in writing or speaking in public.

I have helped to write many research funding applications and many others have been evaluated by me. My goal in creating this website is to share my broad knowledge and focus it in the most practical aspects of any fellowship application.
