Fondation MEDIC

Type of grants


The MEDIC foundation will accept requests for financial support for biomedical research projects that are in the scope of the research interests of the consortium 'Tumor-host interaction' and from groups affiliated with the previously mentioned academic institutions. Tumor-host interaction should be taken in a broad sense, including for example but not limited to angiogenesis, stromal reaction, immune response or immunotherapy. As a rule, the grants are for a three year period of research. They can include salaries of scientific or laboratory personnel, a bench fee and field expenses. As a rule, equipment is not funded but well argued requests for equipment can be taken into consideration.

Funded grants usually do not exceed CHF 150.000 per year. Grant applications are peer reviewed. The Board of Trustees takes final decisions regarding funding, following proposals of the Scientific Advisory Board.
