About the Grant
Since its inception in 2005, Medjaden has always been committed to helping scholars from non-native English-speaking countries, especially from Mainland China, to present their latest research in international journals. To encourage and support graduate students and young scientists to design better research studies and perform quality experiments,Medjaden founded the "Research Grant for Young Scientists", as part of our effort to further fulfill our commitment and meet our social responsibilities. As a seed grant designed to encourage and support young scientists, the grant aims to support all basic and clinical research projects in any biomedical science field.
We hope that with the help of the grant, young Chinese scientists can pursue their research ideas, enhance their research capacity, gain key experiences in research, and be better prepared to apply for high-level grants, such as those from the National Natural Science Foundation of China.
