The mission of the ROTRF is to advance the science of solid organ transplantation by funding research programmes that contribute to the clinical and scientific knowledge of transplantation. Researchers with innovative scientific ideas and approaches - also from outside of the direct field of transplantation - are strongly encouraged to apply.
Applications for grants are reviewed in a two-stage process:
- First, a letter of intent - a short, descriptive abstract of the research proposal - is submitted online.
- Selected applicants are then invited to submit a traditional full paper application.
Applicants must be established members of academic staff at universities, transplant centres or research institutes. Next letter of intent deadline: 1 April 2001.
