SWISS BRIDGE AWARD 2010: supporting cancer research projects
By: Sandra Habegger
SWISS BRIDGE is releasing a call for contributions for this year’s SWISS BRIDGE AWARD. The SWISS BRIDGE foundation has been supporting high-quality cancer research projects in Europe for over a decade.
In order to assist junior scientists in the initiation of their independent careers in cancer research, projects from junior investigators (junior in terms of seniority and not of age) focusing on translational research, i.e. cancer research projects with an impact on clinical practice will be eligible for support. Up to three projects will receive funding amounting to a total of approx. 500 000 CHF (50% of the funding has been earmarked for Swiss projects).
Junior investigators from academic and cancer research institutions in Europe are invited to submit a note of intent for a new cancer research project. Please refer to the attached announcement or the SWISS BRIDGE website for further information and submission procedure.
The note of intent must be transmitted by e-mail on or before 31 March 2010 to:
Office of the Scientific Board of the Swiss Bridge Foundation
c/o Swiss Cancer League, P.O. Box 8219, CH-3001 Bern, Switzerland.
