This year, young investigators1 with projects focusing on cancer therapy resistance are eligible for application.
Investigators from academic and cancer research institutions in Europe are invited to submit a note of intent by e-mail for a new cancer research project on or before 30 April 2023.
The proposals will be evaluated by an international scientific jury. 6 – 8 investigators will be shortlisted and invited to submit a detailed research application by mid-June 2023. Upon peer review and recommendation from the scientific jury, the top-ranked Swiss project and the top-ranked project from another European country will receive funding amounting to a total support of 500 000 Swiss francs2.
