BioNut researchers receive KID-funding
Seventy researchers at Karolinska Institutet received KID-funding in the 2021 call and eight of them are active researchers at the Department of Biosciences and Nutrition, something that the Head of the Department sees as a much appreciated verification of the high quality of both the established and the new researchers at the department.
The Committee for doctoral education has taken a decision regarding the allocation of funds among the applications in the 2021 KID Call. Eight of the seventy researchers at KI who received KID-funding 2021 are active at the Department of Biosciences and Nutrition (BioNut). How the funding is allocated is based on quality with the intention of promoting good supervision, a good doctoral research environment and excellence in research.
"Seven of the eight researchers at BioNut that received KID funding are not professors at the department and one is not yet group leader, which indicates a strong potential for the future", says Janne Johansson, Head of the Department. "The KID projects cover many different topics, such as hormone regulation, ageing mechanisms, epigenetics, biomaterials and molecular chaperones and this breadth is also very encouraging for the future of the department.".
