DKMS will support young scientists with 240,000 euros each
DKMS Foundation for Giving Life invites young scientists worldwide to apply for the John Hansen Research Grant. The application deadline is December 3, 2021. The research grant is endowed with 240,000 euros each, paid over three years. With this sum, the foundation annually supports up to four international young scientists with promising research projects in the field of blood stem cell transplantation and cell therapy. DKMS is an international non-profit organization in the fight against blood cancer.
Requirements for participation include a doctorate or comparable qualification dating back no more than eight years. All information on the application modalities as well as further details on the John Hansen Research Grant are available on the DKMS Professionals` Platform – professional.dkms.org/research-grant.
“As long as there are still patients who suffer relapses or die from life-threatening complications such as graft-versus-host disease, we are far from reaching our goal,” says Marcel van den Brink, Chairman, DKMS Foundation Board.
