NDA Research grant 2020

NDA Research grant 2020 was open for application until Oct. 30th, 2020.

Residents in dermatology and venereology and recently approved specialist dermatologists working in Nordic countries were eligible to apply, and research projects investigating dermatological diseases with few funding possibilities and planned Nordic collaboration were considered advantageous.

NDA research committee evaluated the applications according to their clinical and scientific importance and feasibility. The research committee received several applications from Finland, Sweden, and Denmark, and the proposed research projects were found to be in general of high quality and research objectives were considered clinically and scientifically relevant. A few projects included Nordic collaboration.

The following two Nordic applicants and PhD-research projects were selected as grant recipients Dec. 8th, 2020:

Kristina Viiklepp (Finland): Classical pathway of complement system in cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma

Philip Curman (Sweden): Development of novel treatments for a rare severe skin condition: Darier disease.

Both grant receivers received 30,000 SEK, and will present an update and preliminary results of their research projects to the NDA board for publication on the NDA website and in Forum for Nordic Dermato-Venereology within one year.

NDA board and NDA research committee congratulates the grant receivers and wishes all the applicants success with their research projects!
