Call for FOREUM International Fellowships

FOREUM is committed to funding and promoting scientific research into rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMD) and has a goal to foster links between rheumatology units in different countries. Consistent with these goals is the establishment of a call for international fellowships that have the specific objective of facilitating the development of research capacity and training high-caliber applicants in RMD research.

FOREUM International Fellowships are intended to fund excellent research projects in the field of RMDs that address any basic, translational or clinical aspects of these conditions.

The call stimulates applicants conducting a research project in the field of RMDs in a host center of choice for a period of 12 months. During this time the fellow will be mentored and trained in specific techniques, models or patient data by the team of the host center that are required to successfully conduct the project.
