Grant for research in geriatric medicine
Grant for research in geriatric medicine by the Funds Marie-Thérèse De Lava & Robert Schneider
What is it about?
The Fund Marie-Thérèse De Lava and the Fund Robert Schneider wish to foster research in geriatric medicine, which plays an increasing role in health care. Both Funds aim to encourage high level researchers to develop their career by combining scientific research in geriatrics with clinical practice.
The support of max. 140.000 € over a period of 3 years, should enable a promising researcher in geriatrics to develop his own research line and to anchor his longer-term research vision. The research will focus on improving health, well-being and quality of life of older adults.
The online application form will soon be available.
Who is it for?
Assistant doctors (committed to a PhD program), after at least one year training as geriatrician and doctors within the 8 years after promotion (with an additional year per childbirth or adoption) as geriatrician who can convincingly show they envisage pursuing a career in geriatrics, either for a PhD or to continue research after PhD. They must be linked to a clinical position as geriatrician at a university hospital in Belgium. The hospitals and universities are expected to provide co-funding in the form of infrastructure facilities.View the selection criteria
