Call for research projects

Call for proposals for research projects on the pathogenesis, diagnostics and therapy of scleroderma.

The German Foundation for Scleroderma and the Edith Busch Foundation have set themselves the goal of supporting clinical and experimental work. To this end, they support projects by individuals or working groups.

This includes:

Research projects (e.g. start-up funding for young independent research group leaders), short-term grants, visits to other laboratories and clinics, exchange of younger scientists.

The corresponding applications to improve the understanding of the pathogenesis, diagnostics and therapy of scleroderma can be submitted until February 28, 2023. These applications may not exceed 25,000 euros and should be based on the model of the German Research Foundation. They should be limited to a total of seven pages.

The applications should be supplemented by a brief curriculum vitae and a bibliography of the applicant. A perspective of further funding of the project by other sponsors should also be outlined. Subsequent applications for ongoing projects are generally not supported by the foundation.

Please address the applications to:
