Our Purpose

Thank you for your interest in our work.

The Novartis Foundation for Medical-Biological Research was founded to foster medical-biological science in Switzerland by means of financial support for research projects conducted at Swiss universities in the field of medicine and medically oriented biology / biochemistry.

In addition, we fund young researchers at the beginning of their careers by supporting their early stages of independency or by co-funding research fellowships abroad (e.g, postdocs).

If you are not sure whether or not your application fits our scope, please read our guidelines or feel free to contact us.
