TEFAF Oncology Chair
In 2005, the Board of the TEFAF decided to support medical cancer research by appointing a personal chair in the field of Oncology at the University Hospital Maastricht (azM) and the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences. The visiting (international) professor will stimulate both the current medical research and training of doctors and researchers, as well as broaden knowledge and skills, also in the Euregion Meuse-Rhine. The visiting professor will function within GROW - School for Oncology and Reproduction. A TEFAF fellowship is linked to the TEFAF Chair. This fellowship enables a young scientist (PhD student, postdoc level) to perform part of their research in the lab of the visiting professor. Fellowship exchange experiences are presented at the annual GROW Science Day.
