Young Talented Cancer Researchers

The Danish Cancer Society’s Scientific Committee – Biology & Clinic (KBVU-BK) supports young talents and their development in cancer research. Support is therefore awarded to younger researchers in the form of support for project-related expenses and postdoctoral fellowships.

Support for project-related expenses for establishing research careers
The purpose is to support the continued development of young independent cancer researchers who, within the last eight years, have obtained a PhD degree and demonstrated the ability to research at a high international level. The support is awarded to carry out excellent and ambitious projects in all aspects of cancer research, and the funds are allocated to researchers who have already shown their potential by obtaining support for their own salary, however, a 50% exemption from clinical work can be applied for.

Postdoctoral fellowship in Denmark or abroad
The purpose is to support younger researchers, with a PhD degree or equivalent, who have not yet obtained permanent employment, but who can document research experience in order to carry out an independent cancer research project in Denmark or abroad. A postdoctoral fellowship abroad is awarded to Danish researchers who go abroad on their own to carry out an independent cancer research project in order to gain knowledge and experience in an international research environment, but who are not employed at a Danish hospital, university or in a company during the stay abroad.
