Uppsala universitet inbjuder ansökningar om medel ur Thuréus stiftelse för främjande av geriatrisk forskning. Detta stöder forskning inom ålderdomens område, utredning av ålderdomens problem och sjukdomar samt deras profylax och botande jämte principerna för åldringsvård. Tekniska hjälpmedel samt speciella byggnads- och inredningsproblem bör studeras. Behöriga att söka är svenska medborgare som avlagt läkarexamen och är verksamma vid svenska lärosäten som bedriver medicinsk forskning. Läkarexamen krävs inte för forskning av mer teknisk art som till exempel hjälpredskap eller byggnad.

Scholarships in Medical sciences can be granted to doctoral students and researchers. In the latter category, applicants who were awarded a PhD degree in the past five years are prioritised. Scholarships are payable for a maximum period of one year. Of the funds available, SEK 800,000 is earmarked for scholarships for research (max 3) to Swedish, younger doctoral researchers for research in neurophysiology, preferably emotional physiology. The grant will not cover salary. SEK 350,000 of the funds available is earmarked for scholarships for research that promote medical scientific research on the causes and treatment of primary cancer of the liver and biliary-tract, and in particular research on the complicated effects of severe disorders in the blood's clotting ability. The remaining available funds can be applied for general medical research. The application must clearly state in which area funds are applied.
Closing date: 15 January 2020
Scholarships are awarded for scientific studies or continuing practical training within or outside Sweden. Six scholarships, each worth SEK 100,000, are divided between the humanities (2), medicine (2) and natural sciences (2). Please note: the amount applied for must be exactly SEK 100,000 per application. Applicants must have been awarded a doctoral degree in Sweden, or be eligible for admission to doctoral studies at one of Sweden’s philosophical or medical faculties. Applicants may not be employed by the state or municipality, or be employed as a teacher in higher education. Priority will be given to recent recipients of doctoral degrees who require funding for continued research on postdoc-level at other universities, within or outside Sweden.

The AO Foundation, under Cranial and Maxillofacial section (AOCMF), invites applications for its translational approaches for bone constructs – impact on facial bone reconstruction. The funding is for up to three years and supports the development of constructs for translational bone repair approaches. The project has the following aims:
•short-term – cell growth, cell carriers, scaffolds and other biomaterials, growth factors that enhance bone growth in experimental settings, development of 3D printable osteogenic or osteoconductive constructs or assessing relevant bio-physiological aspects for cell maintenance in biomaterial;
•mid-term – bone defect repair studies using bone substitute biomaterials in non-malignant diseases;
•long-term – intraoperative reconstruction of facial bone defect using 3D printable bone substitute material.
Closing date: 29 November 2019
The AO Foundation invites applications for its start-up grants. These support projects related to basic, preclinical and clinical research broadly in the fields of trauma and reconstruction in cranio-maxillofacial surgery. The aim is to provide predominantly seed money to researchers in the early part of their career. Investigators who are members of AOCMF are eligible if they are 40 years of age or younger and either:
•within five years of the completion of their terminal degree, such as MD, DVM or PhD;
•within five years of initiation of their first assistant professor position;
•enrolled in residency programmes or fellowships.
Grants are worth up to CHF 25,000 each per year for up to two years. An additional CHF 1,500 is available for travel to conferences.
Closing date: 28 November 2019
The Osteology Foundation invites applications for its osteology research grants. These support research on oral and maxillofacial tissue regeneration. Applications are open to advanced researchers in the field of oral tissue regeneration and young researchers currently undergoing postgraduate education or within three years thereafter.
Grants for advanced researchers are worth up to CHF 100,000 each for projects lasting up to two years. Grants for young researchers are worth up to CHF 30,000 each for projects lasting up to one year.
Closing date: 1 December 2019
The European Society of Cardiology invites applications for its basic research fellowship. This enables a researcher to spend one year in a European research laboratory of their choice, working on a preclinical research project in cardiovascular sciences. Preference will be given to those for whom the award will enable the fellow to learn novel techniques valuable for their future career.
Candidates should not be older than 35 years, and may be of any nationality. Candidates must have activity in the area of cardiovascular sciences and must agree to apply for free membership of an ESC working group. The current laboratory of the applicant must be different from the host laboratory.
Closing date: 1 December 2019
Federal Funding agencies
Fundamental Mechanisms of Affective and Decisional Processes in Cancer Control (R01 Clinical Trial Optional): NIH
The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage projects to generate fundamental knowledge of affective processes. Basic affective science projects should have key consequences for single (e.g., cancer screening) and multiple (e.g., adherence to oral chemotherapy regimen) event decisions and behaviors across the cancer prevention and control continuum. The FOA is expected to encourage collaboration among cancer control researchers and those from scientific disciplines not traditionally connected to cancer control applications (e.g., affective and cognitive neuroscience, decision science, consumer science) to elucidate perplexing and understudied problems in affective and decision sciences with downstream implications for cancer prevention and control.
Diet and Physical Activity Assessment Methodology (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed): NIH
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages innovative research to enhance the quality of measurements of dietary intake and physical activity. Applications submitted to this FOA may include development of: novel assessment approaches; better methods to evaluate instruments; assessment tools for culturally diverse populations or various age groups, including children and older adults; improved technology or applications of existing technology; statistical methods/modeling to improve assessment and/or to correct for measurement errors or biases; methods to investigate the multidimensionality of diet and physical activity behavior through pattern analysis; or integrated measurement of diet and physical activity along with the environmental context of such behaviors.
Deadlines: Standard dates apply, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
Women & Sex/Gender Differences in Drug and Alcohol Abuse/Dependence (R01 Clinical Trial Optional): NIH
The purpose of this FOA is two-fold: (1) to advance identification of male-female differences in drug and alcohol research outcomes, to uncover the mechanisms of those differences, and to conduct translational research on those differences, and (2) to advance research specific to women or highly relevant to women. Both preclinical and clinical studies are sought across all areas of drug and alcohol research.
Deadlines: Standard dates), by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
The Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance invites letters of intent for the Keith Michael Andrus Memorial award.
