What is it about?
The call for fundamental research with clinical translation in the field of research on the mechanisms of pediatric cancers is launched by the Funds Simon Bauvin, Robert Brancart, Christian Lispet, Rosa Meynen and Denise Raes.
The introduced research project must aim to improve the understanding of pediatric tumor biology, including (but not limited to) studies on genetic change, signaling pathways, the tumor microenvironment. The project should include clear perspectives for applications in medicine.
The call is open to young post-doctoral researchers (maximum 8 years of active research activities (with an additional time for documented career break) following their PhD thesis public defense), working full-time or part-time (at least 50%) within a university or research center in Belgium and collaborating with clinic researchers. Collaboration between teams in Belgium is encouraged. Projects that involve collaboration with international research teams must be new and initiated and coordinated by the team based in Belgium.
