18 research scholarships in medicine have been awarded to Karolinska Institutet by the Swedish Society for Medical Research (SSMF) this year. A total of 34 post-docs at six Swedish universities will share close to SEK 80 million.

“Post-doc education is an absolute necessity to be able to continue to pursue a successful career in research. A scholarship from SSMF allows a researcher to not only gain important experience in a new research setting but also establish a network of his or her own for continued collaborations,” says professor Mats Ulfendahl, who chairs the SSMF, in a press release.
