Established in 1984, the LEO Foundation provides philanthropic grants to some of the world’s leading scientists in skin research.
To that end, the foundation welcomes applications for its Open Competition grants. Through the program, grants aree awarded in support of research projects with potential to improve the understanding of the underlying medicinal, biological, chemical, or pharmacological mechanisms of dermatological diseases and their symptoms, and address clinical issues among people who are at risk of developing, or have developed, a skin disease, including how it impacts their quality of life and the societal costs involved.
The main applicant should hold at least a PhD degree (or equivalent academic qualifications).
See the LEO Foundation website for complete program guidelines, application instructions, and information about previous grantees.
