At the LEO Foundation, we believe that we with our grants are able to make a significant contribution to promoting dermatological research worldwide – research that may otherwise find it difficult to attract funds, especially in competition with other, more high-profile medical specialties.
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 Foundation focuses on projects within dermatology as a natural consequence of the knowledge and skills amassed in LEO Pharma over the years: knowledge and skills, which mean that the foundation in collaboration with LEO Pharma is well versed to assess and prioritise potential projects.
The Foundation furthermore, on an annual basis, awards young dermatology researchers a Gold Award (DKK 1,000,000) and a Silver Award (DKK 500,000).
