Funding for Mildred Scheel Young Investigators Centre

The Mildred Scheel Young Investigators Centre in Frankfurt, whose spokesperson is Prof. Simone Fulda, is receiving funding of 10 million euros from German Cancer Aid. This makes the Department of Medicine at Goethe University and the University Hospital Frankfurt one of only five locations nationwide to benefit from the five-year funding programme.

After a very elaborate procedure, Frankfurt finally prevailed and also convinced the international reviewers. “We are extremely pleased about this funding. With the Mildred Scheel Young Investigators Centre, we want to advance the training of a new generation of researching physicians and cancer researchers and hope to gain completely new impulses and dynamics, coupled with expertise in applied cancer research,” says Prof Josef Pfeilschifter, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine and board member of the Frankfurt Foundation for Children with Cancer.
