EHA Research Grants

The call is now closed

EHA Research Grants support talented junior researchers in advancing their career, e.g. towards becoming the leader of a research group.

If you have ambition for advancing your career and you have the support of your department and institute, welcome to the homepage for EHA Research Grants!

Please note that the EHA Research Grants are intended for basic and translational lab-based research in hematology. Purely clinical research projects will not be eligible, nor projects in health economics or other non-lab-based research. An exception can be the translational part of a clinical trial, although it must be relevant and novel.

Applicants may be of any nationality, but the home or host institute must be an academic research center or proven equivalent, and one of them must be in located in Europe.

At the time of application, the applicant should be a member of EHA or EHA Guest.
