Post-graduate students or early-stage postdoctoral researchers are invited to submit innovative proposals in the field of nephrology. Proposals in neurology/dementias/aging and oncology/tumur biology, will be equally considered. The Competition is open until Friday 27 November 2015.

The Molecular Medicine Research Center (MMRC) of the University of Cyprus (www.ucy.ac.cy/mmrc) has been funded through Stage 1 of the Horizon 2020-Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation-TEAMING action, for the project entitled: “Biobanking and the Cyprus Human Genome Project (CY-Biobank)”. The main aim of the proposal, if funded through Stage 2, is to upgrade the existing MMRC and its Biobanking activity into a Center of Excellence and develop state-of-the-art research in human genetics. Partners in this proposal are MMRC/University of Cyprus (Coordinator), the Medical University of Graz, the Biobanking & BioMolecular Resources Research Infrastructure-European Research Infrastructure Consortium (BBMRI-ERIC) and RTD TALOS LTD-Cyprus.
