Advanced Projects

The IZKF offers research grants in all major research areas of the Faculty of Medicine, i.e. immunology and infection research, renal and vascular research, neurosciences and tumor research. Since the last funding period (2010 – 2013) the project duration is 30 months. After a single funding period projects should be transferred to extramural funding. If the application for extramural funding was filed within the duration of the IZKF project it is possible to extend the duration for another 6 months.

IZKF projects ordinarily include two personnel positions (doctoral student and technical assistant or two doctoral students or in exceptional cases a postdoctoral). Applicants are expected to have an active publication record and own external funding. Preliminary results should yield the promise of a successful transfer of the project into external funding after the 30-months term. Innovative and original ideas and concepts are especially valued as well as the clinical relevance and interdisciplinary approaches. Applicants from all clinics, departments and institutes of the Faculty of Medicine and co-applicants from other faculties are entitled with no age limit.
