Eleven of the seventy reseachers that were granted funding in the 2021 KID Call at Karolinska Institutet are active at the Department of Medicine in Huddinge - Congratulations to all of you!

The Committee for doctoral education has taken a decision regarding the allocation of funds among the applications in the 2021 KID Call. A total of 70 KID applications were granted funding, eleven of those are from MedH. The five highest ranked first-time principal supervisors who have defended their theses in the last 10 years received a larger annual standard amount. Three out of five of these applicants are from MedH; Nicole Marquardt and Andrea Ponzetta at CIM and Niklas Mejhert at the Endocronology unit.

These researchers received 100 percent of KID funding for a doctoral student:

Nicole Marquardt at the Center for Infectious Medicine for "Kartläggning av NK‐cellers heterogenitet och funktion i människans lunga i hälsa och sjukdom"

Andrea Ponzetta at the Center for Infectious Medicine for "Dynamiska förändringar av immunlandskapet i gastroesofageal cancer som en ny parameter för patientklassificering och behandling" 

Niklas Mejhert at the Endocrinology unit for "Kopplingen mellan fettcellsheterogenitet och kardiometabola sjukdomar"
