Welcome to the IZKF

The Interdisciplinary Center for Clinical Research (IZKF) is the central structure of research development of the Faculty of Medicine of the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU). Its mission is to improve the overall quality of clinical research at the Medical Faculty, to stimulate interdisciplinary research, to advance the careers of young scientist and to foster the acquisition of extramural funds.

The decision has been made. After it had been unclear for some time whether the IZKF Symposium "The Magic M's in Modern Medicine" could take place in Kloster Banz, the IZKF board - together with the programme committee - has now decided to host the event there. We look forward to welcome you on 9th and 10th June in Bad Staffelstein.

Project applications for IZKF funding can be submitted until 27.04.2022. Please note the fill-in instructions of the respective documents when submitting. The entire project outline should not be longer than 5 pages (without cover page). The Research Profile has been updated: In case of maternity/parental leave within the last 5 years, the period for publications/funding can be extended accordingly.

On May 9, starting at 11:00 a.m., the colloquium for junior projects will take place in the Harald-zur-Hausen Lecture Hall, followed by a peer review meeting. The applicants will be informed about the results of the meeting in due time. The approved projects will be funded with one staff position and consumables for a period of 30 months.
