Fostering Up-and-Coming Medical Researchers at UZH

The fund for medical research supports highly promising medical research carried out by young members of the Faculty of Medicine at UZH with the aim of using the newly developed treatment methods within the faculty.

Research in human medicine

The fund was established in 2022 and integrated in the UZH Foundation in 2019. As a dependent foundation, it has remained true to its original purpose. The foundation only supports projects run by students and researchers at the Faculty of Medicine. If approved, funding for these projects may be covered by the foundation in full.
