Support and funds for cancer research –
The Relander Foundation sr

The Relander Foundation is founded by Harald Relander to provide grants and contributions for Finnish education and research work against cancer.

The Relander Foundation started its operations in Finland in 2016, and the first grants were decided during 2018. Grant applications are welcome on a continuous basis, and decisions on the awarded grants are made once a year.

The main focus of the foundation is to enable doctorate and post doctorate researchers to go abroad to do research or to come back to Finland, to continue their research or to join a Finnish research team. The Foundation can give multiyear grants up to a total of
100 000€ per application.

The foundation will announce an open call for applications in the magazines Suomen Lääkärilehti (Finnish Medical Journal) and Duodecim in the first quarter of the current year.

We want to courage medical researchers and research teams to send open applications with descriptions of their research activities and a defined need for funding to The Relander Foundation. Deadline for applications: 1st of May.

The foundation’s Members of the Board are Professor Kristiina Vuori, M.D. Ph.D.;Chief Physician Timo Joensuu, M.D. Ph.D.;  Chief Physician Tuomo Alanko, M.D., Ph.D. and Pär-Gustaf Relander as the Chairman of the Board.
