Twelve young scientists receive Ingvar Carlsson Award

The Foundation for Strategic Research, SSF, has decided to give 48 million to twelve promising young postdocs. The projects focus on proteins, cells and molecules as part of the efforts to diagnose and treat diseases better and with fewer side effects than today. Also, there´s projects about new techniques for faster semiconductors and machine learning.

Each recipient will receive 4 million SEK and a personal grant of 60 000 SEK. Also included is a leadership program for the beneficiaries. Here are the recipients in 2017:
