The Schering Stiftung and the Fritz Thyssen Foundation offer start-up grants to fund promising research ideas by young scientists. Support is provided for projects in the fields of biochemical, neuroscience or immunological basic research with biomedical implications. The program is explicitly aimed at highly motivated young investigators who want to become independent researchers and pursue their own research ideas.
The Schering Stiftung and the Fritz Thyssen Foundation makes possible research projects of young scientists that cannot be realized with existing funds and resources and for which application for other funding is not possible because of a lack of preliminary research. The start-up grant thus lays the foundations for a subsequent grant application.
Schering Stiftung and Fritz Thyssen Foundation earmarked a total of EUR 120,000 for this grant program. Applicants can apply for up to EUR 60,000 per project.

In her current research, the young scientist aims to investigate the significance of the inflammatory haematoma environment for the behaviour of bone marrow stem cells.Learn more
With his current investigations, the young scientist would like to support the development of therapies that aim to modulate the function of the T cells in a tissue-specific way.Learn more
The young scientist wants to detect brain-reactive B cells in patients with Multiple Sclerosis and related diseases through usage of novel methodological approaches.Learn more
The young scientist aims to identify human-derived naturally occurring peptides that boost anti-viral autophagy and that will be the basis for future development of effective, broadly active anti-viral drugs.Learn more
The young scientist aims to understand the mechanisms by which very small specialized compartments inside a cell can be formed and how the cell can coordinate its processes and spaces.Learn more
These findings will set the basis for understanding of the hormone signalling mechanisms that regulate pivotal body functions and have been implicated in the pathogenesis of multiple disorders including diabetes mellitusLearn more
