Let’s work together! We offer various collaboration opportunities for scientists, students and curious minds who want to shape the future of healthcare.

New horizons

We know that the most exciting innovations are developed when people with different backgrounds work together. We also think that a range of different ideas from various disciplines is essential when tackling challenging research problems. Collaborate with us from wherever you are in the world and open new horizons by contributing your expertise to exciting projects!

Each of the portal’s initiatives is based on a unique concept. Are you interested in:

  • Joining other bright young talents in a one-week summer camp?
  • Obtaining fast track research funding?
  • Working as a guest scientist or intern in our research laboratories?
  • Collaborating with us on compound and technology exchange?
