The Bo & Kerstin Hjelt Foundation for Type 2 diabetes research

Deadline December 1st, 2019
Project funding beginning on April 1st, 2020

The Bo & Kerstin Hjelt Foundation for type 2 diabetes research was established in 2008 and has as a long-term goal to fund research to prevent and cure type 2 diabetes. The Foundation finances diabetes research at the Medical Faculties of Lund University, Sweden and Geneva University, Switzerland.

The foundation solicits applications from independent investigators or young scientists on the way to independence. Preference will be given to novel projects rather than support for on-going research. The subsidy can cover salaries and/or costs for consumables including laboratory rodents. Equipment and other infrastructure will not be financed.
