With the overall aim of catalysing Danish fundamental research impacting better health through knowledge, the purpose of the ‘Hallas-Møller Emerging Investigator – Bioscience and Basic Biomedicine’ grant is to support highly promising starting group leaders with novel and ambitious projects that will bring new and important insight into life and health.

  • Applicants are expected to have first-authored peer-reviewed research papers with a high impact.
