Novo Nordisk Fellowships
Novo Nordisk Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme at Karolinska Institutet
This fellowship programme aims to support the development of a new generation of exceptional young diabetes and metabolism researchers, to become future leaders in the field, while further developing scientific excellence within these areas ultimately improving the lives of patients.
This academic-industry joint initiative has during its lifetime recruited 24 fellows receiving their postdoctoral training at 10 different Karolinska Institutet departments, working with 18 different research groups. Fellows have been undertaking cutting edge research projects, mentored by front-line researchers in the field of diabetes and metabolism. They have also had a mentors at Novo Nordisk to support research collaborations with the company. Thus, Fellows have gained insight into research conducted in both academia and industry. In order to increase coherence around the Fellowship programme, a number of events have been held throughout the years such as high profile lectures, symposia, etc. both at Karolinska Institutet and at Novo Nordisk in the Copenhagen area.
Final symposium on March 19-20, 2024
In addition to scientific presentations, the program will highlight the fruitful collaboration between KI and Novo Nordisk and provide career information sessions. As such, the theme for the event is “building bridges”: building bridges to new people, to new environments, to new careers, to new knowledge, and to new treatments.
