radiz Rare Disease Research Grant

In order to increase the Rare Disease (RD) network at the University of Zurich, an open call for additional RD Projects was issued in 2014 resulting in 24 high quality applications requesting a total of 5.4 Mio CHF in funding.

Three radiz Research grants (up to 250 000 CHF each) were awarded to groups investigating systemic sclerosis, linear localized scleroderma, and ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) deficiency.
More details about these projects can be found here.

radiz has now closed its second call for proposals resulting in 18 high quality grant applications. Three grants of CHF 100 000 for the duration of 16 months (September 2017 – December 2018) have been awarded to young researchers investigating nephropathic cystinosis, pityriasis rubra pilaris, and TTC7A deficiency disease.
