65 researchers at Karolinska Institutet received KID-funding in the call 2022 and five of these are active researchers at the Department of Biosciences and Nutrition.

The allocation of the KID-funding is based on quality with the intention of promoting good supervision, a good doctoral research environment and excellence in research. The Committee for doctoral education has taken a decision regarding the allocation of funds among the applications in the 2022 KID Call. Five of the 65 researchers at KI who received KID-funding 2022 are active at the Department of Biosciences and Nutrition (BioNut). 

Congratulations to the five grantees at BioNut!

The Head of the Department of Biosciences and Nutrition, Professor Janne Johansson, is on behalf of all of BioNut congratulating the grantees.
