Description

Alzheimer Sponsored Scholarship

Sponsored projects will be carried out in a German research institution. Potential topics involve basic research of Alzheimer’s disease and similar age-related diseases, clinical research and health services research including the creation of innovative  health care concepts. The scholarship addresses students of natural sciences like biology, biochemistry or chemistry as well as human and veterinary medicine.

More Details

In Germany alone, over one million people suffer from one kind or another of dementia related diseases.
Most of those affected suffer from Alzheimer. Against the background of a constantly aging society, the conservative estimates for the number of people affected by the disease will have more than doubled by the year 2050. There is yet no cure for the disease.
It is therefore essential that sustainable results be reached in order to stop the dramatic increase in dementia related diseases.
