The LEO Foundation supports international dermatological research projects and activities that address issues in disease understanding, disease treatment, disease awareness and patient wellbeing. Typical projects and activities are international studies, scientific symposia, science-based knowledge dissemination and awareness campaigns.
The LEO Foundation welcomes applications from projects that:
We prioritise projects that commit to sharing results with the general public, patients and healthcare professionals – for example through publication in peer-reviewed journals, oral presentations and public awareness campaigns.
We also prioritise projects with international scope and we favour projects that are based at a university or university hospital and applicants with solid, well-documented international research backgrounds.
Finally, we also accept applications for support to university-based educational activities within natural sciences that help attract students to medicine, chemistry and pharmacy.
