- THE AWARD
As in the prior year, the 2019 award programme is intended to recognise and support those individuals or their institutions who are making a difference in advancing the knowledge around ECP Immunomodulation, in the EMEA region, with one educational grant of €50,000. This year’s award programme continues to support research investigating pathways of ECP therapy’s unique immunomodulatory mechanisms while specifically preserving immune function.
The following types of projects will be considered:
∙ Basic, translational or outcomes-based research (examples could include, but are not limited to, mechanistic questions, cell populations involved, the analysis of existing clinical data and/or corresponding biomarker samples).
∙ Collaborative projects, in the meaning that research could be carried out by the applicant in collaboration with multiple institutions. This is intended to encourage pan-European collaborations.
The Investigator Award Committee, consisting of a group of Medical Scientists employed by Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals, will select applications based on the above-mentioned criteria, judging specifically the novelty and feasibility of submitted projects. Please see all terms and conditions specified below.
