The Léon Fredericq Foundation distributes 1.8 million euros for medical research

(Belga) The Léon Fredericq Foundation, a university hospital foundation created by the CHU of Liège, ULiège, the Léon Fredericq ASBL Fund and the Anticancer Center, proceeded this Wednesday evening to the official proclamation of the 2022-2023 winners of its scholarships and prize in favor of medical research, innovative projects and the fight against cancer in Liège. On this occasion, 180 grants were awarded to researchers involved in all aspects of medicine following a call for projects which was launched last April.

In total, the Léon Fredericq Foundation and the foundations associated with it have distributed to these researchers and doctors aid amounting to more than 1.8 million euros in the form of subsidies, equipment grants, travel, operating grants, clinical research grants and specific prizes, in particular thanks to legacies and private donations. It will thus make available to young researchers and doctors, in 2023: 11 travel grants, 9 clinical research grants, 35 operating grants, 29 specific prizes, 81 fixed credits, 11 grants from associated foundations and a major grant from equipment intended to support the CNRF (Neurologic and Functional Rehabilitation Center of the University Hospital of Liège). The foundation also donated a sum of 50,000 euros in favor of an innovative “Babydetect” project consisting of screening at birth for more than 120 serious and treatable genetic diseases of children, before the first symptoms appear, in order to treat them before the disease acts. Finally, the foundation awarded two impulse credits of 50,000 euros, baptized “Russian Julia”: the first in favor of a project relating to pancreatic cancer and the other on glioblastoma, thanks to a bequest received this year .
