Paul Fentener van Vlissingen Fellowship

 The Lymph&Co Foundation works with the motto “Away with Lymphoma”. To achieve this goal, Lymph&Co has linked itself to a strong commitment to stimulate promising and high quality research and to offer financial support for basic, translational and clinical research that may pave the way for better outcome and/or more cure. Lymph&Co supports research with three types of grants, i.e., the Lymph&Co research grant, a Consortium Initiation grant and the Paul Fentener van Vlissingen Lymphoma Fellowship.

Paul Fentener van Vlissingen Lymphoma Fellowship

This grant honours the memory of Paul Fentener van Vlissingen. The fellowship aims to support a young, talented physician or researcher to get additional training in particular research areas and further develop his/her skills and knowledge of lymphoma. The fellowship funds salary, housing and materials necessary to visit an internationally renowned research team working on the understanding of the cause of malignant lymphoma or new ways to treat this disease. The fellowship will support the applicant with € 50,000 per year, for a maximum of two years. Local and hosting teams are invited to submit their joint nomination using the Paul Fentener van Vlissingen Lymphoma Fellowship application form and recommendation letters available on the Lymph&Co website.
