Research Fellowship

This Fellowship succeeds the Nordisk Grant for the Study of Growth which was established in 1978 on the initiative of the late Professor Andrea Prader, the late Professor Henning Andersen and the late Henry Brennum (Nordisk Gentofte A/S).

The Research Fellowship enables talented young scientists, investigators, and paediatric endocrinologists to conduct research at leading institutions worldwide. This outstanding programme has helped launch powerful careers in leading-edge clinical research in paediatric endocrinology.
