The Albrecht von Haller Young Investigator Award will be granted to an innovative project of a young investigator to the amount of 25,000 Swiss Francs, as well as to three outstanding doctoral theses to the amount of 2000 Swiss Francs each.

The award is intended solely for the selected project and serves to foster the academic progress of young scientists or physicians and/or to improve health outcomes of patients.

The age limit is 35 years at the time of application. The application must be submitted in English. The deadline for submissions is 31 August 2021.
