On behalf of the Herzfelder’sche Familienstiftung (Herzfelder Family Foundation), the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) has issued a call for research proposals in the field of biochemical/medical cell research. In particular, this call is intended for projects that address the following topics:
Research on cell changes and ageing as well as the search for new means of influencing these processes
Research on cell diseases and malignancies with a view to influencing the human ageing process (prevention of ageing, prolongation of life in good health).
Funding decisions will be made by the management of the Herzfelder’sche Familienstiftung on the basis of the FWF Board’s suggestions.The decisions can be expected in December 2017.
The foundation will provide a total of €650,000 in funding for this call. Where the resources required for an excellent project to be funded by the Herzfelder‘sche Familienstiftung exceed the funding amount provided by the foundation, the FWF will fund the difference from its own budget.
