Stemtherapy at Uppsala University develops methods to affect, support and protect stem cells for medical therapies. These approaches include the design and synthesis of new compounds and biomaterials, the use and engineering of cells and tissues, and evaluations in vitro and in vivo.

The call is explicitly addressing interdisciplinary-working research group constellations with the involvement of at least two faculties to encourage interdisciplinary research.
Each constellation can apply for up to 400 000 SEK. The research should be innovative and conform to the aims of Stemtherapy. The proposals should be maximum of 4 pages A4 (Times New Roman 12, single space) and include Aims, Background, Objectives, Previous results (if any) and Significance. A maximum two-page CV, including a link to published work, per applicant, should be attached. Last day for submission is 22 December 2019.

The proposals will be evaluated by independent experts outside of Uppsala University using the criteria of (i) scientific excellence, (ii) feasibility of the suggested approach and (iii) competence of the applicants. The results of the evaluation will be communicated early 2020.
This call will allow initiation of new projects or support for the continuation of earlier supported StemTherapy projects. Supported project will be evaluated based on results achieved in comparison with the aims of the proposed research.
Between 2-4 projects are expected to be funded.
Applications should be sent by email to: Jöns Hilborn with the mentioning of "Stemtherapy proposal” in the Subject.
