AstraZeneca Foundation to Celebrate the 7th Young Researcher Awards

The AstraZeneca Foundation will celebrate the seventh Young Researchers Awards, under the slogan “people who change lives”. These awards seek to promote science among research groups from different autonomous communities through networked research projects, which facilitate the achievement of results and generate greater scientific knowledge by fostering synergies between the different research groups.

Juan Manuel Corchado, Director of the BISITE research group and President of the AIR Institute, joined the Foundation’s Board of Trustees a few months ago in order to continue contributing to scientific research. The AstraZeneca Foundation remains committed to the development and consolidation of science and research. In this regard, they are investing one million euros among the award winners to promote the development of their research projects.

Research that improves patients’ quality of life

Nominations for the Young Researcher Awards can be submitted for four research priority areas that can improve the quality of life of patients and their families: “Cardiovascular, Renal and Metabolism”, “Respiratory and Immunology”, “Oncology, Precision Medicine and Immuno-Oncology” and “Vaccines and Immunotherapies”. The Carlos III Institute of Health will be the entity that will evaluate the applications. Researchers interested in participating can send their application to until 29 June 2023.

In this year’s event, patients will be involved in the initiative; projects will be able to submit a letter of support issued by a patients’ association in their candidatures, which will be a positive evaluation criterion when it comes to selecting the winning projects.

The Young Researcher Awards seek to promote science and collaborative research in Spain. We invite you to participate and continue contributing to the welfare of society.
