Call for free project funds in the IFB AdiposityDiseases

The Integrated Research and Treatment Center (IFB) AdiposityDiseases invites proposals for projects in the field of obesity research.

Additional free project funds are available to the Integrated Research and Treatment Center (IFB) AdiposityDiseases, which are not linked to IFB professorships and junior research groups. Scientists from the clinics and institutes of the University Medical Center as well as the institutes of the University of Leipzig, who are working in the field of obesity research, can apply for these project funds.

The projects are issued with a budget of up to EUR 200,000 and for a period of 30 months, with smaller projects with a shorter duration being possible, as well as collaborative projects involving more than one institution seeking a higher budget. The administration of the IFB assists the applicants in the preparation of their applications.

In addition, the head of a new Junior Research Group for clinical or experimental obesity research in the research area “Obesity in Children and Adolescents” is also open.

The deadline for both calls is January 10, 2017.
