Summary of key aims

In pursuit of the support the medical and biomedical research in Israel and its advancement, the Research Fund of the Chief Scientist Office at the Ministry of Health awards grants for research projects, feasibility surveys and stipends for in-service training in the field of Ageing. These include: chronic diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, nursing, nutrition and bioethical aspects of Ageing.

Clinicians and researchers (Ph.D., D.Sc. orequivalent) working in any recognized hospital, clinic, laboratory or research institute in Israel are encouraged to send in applications for such grants and stipends.

The Research Fund encourages applications from physicians and researchers at the beginning of their research careers. We also encourage research studies designed to be carried out in hospitals, especially peripheral hospitals. We will also give preference to multi-center and multidisciplinary studies.

Eligible for review and evaluation are those grant applications that relate to research studies of clinical nature or which are disease- and health-related that investigate the etiology, course and treatment of illness and disease. Also eligible are researches that relate to treatment of the chronic patient and nursing.
