A new Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme for future leaders in Biomedical Research
IMIBIC Fellowship Programme for Personalised and Precision Medicine is a new Marie Skłodowska-Curie COFUND Programme (H2020 Grant Agreement No. 847468) at the Maimonides Biomedical Research Institute of Cordoba (IMIBIC), Córdoba, Spain.
IMIBIC-P2Med offers Fellowships of up to 36 months to experienced researchers. All Fellowships are based in IMIBIC, with optional research stays at our Partner Organisations.
6 Fellowships will be awarded in a single Call for Proposals that will remain open from 1st October 2019 until the 10th of January 2020. The Fellows will develop projects within the Institute’s 5 scientific programmes:
I Active aging and Frailty
II Nutrition and endocrine and metabolic diseases
III Infectious and immunological diseases and organ transplantation
IV Cancer (Oncology and Oncohematology)
V Chronic and Inflammatory Diseases
A step ahead in Personalised and Precision Medicine
Biomedical research is a truly multidisciplinary field. Advances in all areas of science and technology are allowing new developments in biomedicine that are having an impact in health research and ultimately in health care, with improved patient outcomes and benefiting society as a whole.
The latest developments in biomedical research have shown a shift toward a patient-centred medicine that allows for more tailored or personalised interventions. While this approach allows for more innovative solutions in diagnostics and medical treatments, it also requires a different set of skills for biomedical researchers.
In this context, IMIBIC-P2Med will contribute to bridging the gap between the medical, biological and computational worlds, by facilitating the access for clinical researchers as well as welcoming bioinformaticians and basic researchers to carry out research projects in close collaboration within clinical research groups.
The IMIBIC Fellowship Programme for Personalised and Precision Medicine offers trans-national mobility for experienced researchers and relevant, top-notch training that improves their career prospects. The selected fellows will perform forward-looking research in a field which is set to become the standard of medical practice, situating them in an advantaged position to continue their research careers.
The IMIBIC Fellowship Programme for Personalised and Precision Medicine has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement 847468. It is jointly funded by the University of Cordoba, the Regional Government of Andalusia (Junta de Andalucía) and the Fundación para la Investigación Biomédica de Córdoba (FIBICO).
What is COFUND?
MSCA-COFUND programmes are European Commission initiatives that offer additional funding for new or existing regional, national and international programmes to provide an international and intersectoral dimension to research training and career development. Within this programme, doctoral programmes, as well as fellowship programmes for experienced researchers, can be supported.
