Radala foundation: ALS research

Expire le 30 juin 2020


The Radala Foundation is looking for established, leading principal investigators eligible for 200,000 CHF research funding to pursue a potentially ground-breaking, high-risk project for 2 years in basic research in ALS. One or two grants of 200,000 Swiss francs will be given each year.
Principal Investigators (PI) – are expected to be active researchers who have a track-record of significant research achievements in the last 10 years. Investigators active in ALS research or in broadly related fields are encouraged to submit proposals relevant to ALS.
Research must be conducted in a public or private research organisation (known as a Host Institution/HI).

Goal of the foundation

The goal of the foundation is to provide research grants for the study of the understanding of the basic causes of the disease. These awards are not directed to clinically related projects for patient care. There is no geographical limitation to the recipients of these grants. Investigators active in ALS research or in broadly related fields are encouraged to submit proposals relevant to ALS.
