Horizon Europe – first call is coming soon!

As part of the Health cluster of Horizon Europe, the call for proposals “Tackling diseases and reducing disease burden”, which targets research on coronavirus mutations and therapeutic response, will be launched on 8 April. Scheduled call for proposals topics:
- Support for the development of large scale, COVID19 cohorts and networks beyond EU borders, forging links with European initiatives as a global response to the pandemic,
- Conduct of vaccine & therapeutic trials to boost prevention and further inform public health policy and clinical management.

Open grant calls

PRELUDIUM 20 call for proposals for researchers without a PhD degree

OPUS 21 call for proposals for researchers at all stages of their careers
Research supported as part of the Programme

The grant awarded in the ‘Young Creator of Science’ call for proposals is the first independent research project in the scientific path of Justyna Topa, MSc from the Department of Translational Oncology. With the help of the acquired funds the Laureate will be able to conduct studies on the impact of honokiol (a compound derived from plants of the magnoliaceae family) on the epithelial-mesenchymal phenotype of breast cancer cells in vitro. They will be a prelude to in vivo experiments, which she plans to perform as part of the SONATA project run by Aleksandra Markiewicz, PhD. The results of the conducted experiments will also form the basis of the project she would like to apply for in the PRELUDIUM NCN call for proposals.
