The “Molecular Mechanisms in Cancer – Translating Discoveries into Personalised Therapies” Eurolife Summer School lasts one week and will be held in Leiden (The Netherlands) from 9th to 13th July 2018. Cancer is one of the most common causes of death around the world; one out of every eight of all deaths is due to cancer. Cancer arises when cells acquire gene mutations that induce uncontrolled cell growth often resulting in invasion into other tissues. Standard chemo- and radio therapy are aimed at killing the rapidly proliferating cancer cells.

The goal of this call is to facilitate further research collaboration between Eurolife member organisations. The grants will support travel and living expenses for junior scientist to travel to another Eurolife laboratory and perform research for a period equal to or longer than 2 weeks. Proposals can be made for the funding period 1 May – 31 December 2017. The amount of the grant is 1,500€ (the number of grants is limited to 9). Researchers employed in any of the 9 institutions of Eurolife (at least when applying and during the exchange period) can apply. These researchers must hold a PhD degree (completed within the last 8 years).
The Eurolife Scholarship Programme for Early Career Researchers has been recently renewed. The programme allowed researchers from Eurolife institutions, who are at an early stage in their career (PhD students, PhD and MD holders), to apply for a scholarship to carry out a research stay of 3-6 months duration at one of the Eurolife institutions […]
The goal of this call is to promote leadership and collaboration of the research staff of Eurolife institutions who intend to apply for H2020 calls or other international funding programmes. This funding will cover the initial costs of grant preparation to apply for Horizon 2020 or international funding. Applicants to this call must be Principal Investigators (PI) based at any of the 9 Eurolife institutions, holding a contract of employment which covers the duration of the grant. A PI may submit just one application to this call, with the exception of two-stage proposals, where the same PI may submit an application in support for the stage 1 and another application in support for the stage 2.
