HEIDELBERG, GERMANY — German independent research institute BioMed X announced the start of its “Ukraine Refugee Funding Program” that supports doctoral students and master-level researchers in the life sciences who cannot continue their work at institutions in Ukraine. In collaboration with some of its partners, BioMed X aims to give these scientists the opportunity to continue their work in a research group at the BioMed X Institute in Heidelberg, Germany, for a period of up to four years.

Thomas Rückle, senior vice president and head of research at the BioMed X Institute: “The situation in Ukraine is a tragedy, which requires a joint effort to offer support and help. Our BioMed X Institute is a place where early-career scientists are given the opportunity to develop themselves. Together with some of our partners we launched this funding program because we sincerely hope to provide a scientific home for some of the researchers who cannot continue their career in Ukraine.”
