Description
With this call the Novo Nordisk Foundation seeks to support and strengthen the development of young and promising research leaders, and to promote Nordic research at a high international level. The call is targeted starting group leaders with ambitious projects within endocrinology and metabolism that aim to understand the human organism and the mechanisms underlying health and disease at a basic and clinical level. One grant will be reserved for an active clinician researcher.The overall goal is to obtain new knowledge and better treatment or prevention of disease relevant to the human organism within the areas of endocrinology and metabolism, relating to cellular energy homeostasis, and hormonal disorders of the endocrine system.Areas supported include research involving patients and/or clinical practice but could also include animal models, model organisms, cellular
- or sub-cellular systems (with clear whole body relevance) as well as in silico analysis, with the overall purpose of solving challenges related to endocrinology and metabolism in health and disease. Please note that endocrinology is not restricted to diabetes. Research projects within all subfields of endocrinology, e.g. thyroid, reproduction, or bone and calcium metabolism can be supported.
