2014-01-13 The top-ranked scientific journals are rejecting the majority of the articles they receive. At Nature, for example, 80 percent of the publications get slammed. Dan Csontos, previously editor at Nature and Nature Physics, has the tricks to get past the editorial eye of the needle. At a workshop organized by the SSF he shared some of them.
2013-11-11 SSF provides 20 young scientists SEK 10 million each in the fifth round of Future Research Leaders. The grants provide successful, young scientists the opportunity to build up an independent research activity at a Swedish university.
2013-10-08 Filipe Maia will create three-dimensional pictures of biological samples, such as viruses, using X-ray free-electron lasers. He is one of 12 researchers that are coming back to Sweden after postdoc-studies abroad. Now he will establish his own independent research group at Uppsala University.
2013-08-19 The foundation has a new Governing Board since July 1, 2013. The following members are appointed.
2013-06-25 The Foundation has decided to fund nine projects in the field of infection biology with a total of SEK 225 million.
The projects will result in new knowledge that may be used in finding cures for malaria or cholera or in the development of new antibiotics, diagnostic tests or vaccines.
SSF announces a total of SEK 225 million in a national call for proposals for problem- or application-driven research projects within the area of Biological production systems.
SSF may nominate up to five candidates to a joint postdoctoral fellowship programme with JSPS.
Biomarkers may for example be used to diagnose and predict disease and to study treatment effects. The number of biomarkers has increased dramatically over the last decade. The challenge onward is to select high-quality biomarkers that are useful in the daily clinical work.
