Last day to apply for MRC MedPrev – Center for Medical Primary Prevention!
Actively working for good health can prevent suffering and the onset of diseases. The Foundation for Strategic Research announces 60 million SEK for the formation of a Multidisciplinary Research Center for Medical Primary Prevention, MRC MedPrev.
The main arena for medical primary prevention in Sweden is the primary care. An active research collaboration between academic institutions/hospitals and primary care units will therefore be crucial and facilitate the long -term implementation of research results from MRC MedPrev.
Applications where the majority of applicants represent general medicine and primary care and where primary care both in rural and urban areas are represented, will be prioritized.
Medical primary prevention in the announcement is defined as measures and strategies that, based on medical science, aim to prevent illness and ill health. For example, the proposed research center can focus on diseases or groups of diseases that meet the criterion of being a public health problem, ie those that affect at least one percent of the population.
