A competition by RFBR aims to support continuing work by young researchers and their teams and to stabilise the employment situation in the most efficient collectives.

The Russian Foundation for Basic Research (RFBR) has allocated between 4m and 6m rubles (~€56,000-€84,920) to young researchers and their teams, for the duration of 2 years.

President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, said the funding is “on urgent measures for preserving scientific and technological potential of the Russian Federation.”

The list of this year’s winners includes:

  • Oksana Bondar, Chief Engineer, Pharmaceutics Center—for her project “Fundamentals for the development of highly efficient antitumour medications based on vitamin B6 with aims to treat tumours with multiple drug resistance”;
  • Vladimir Burilov, Associate Professor, Department of Organic Chemistry—”New macrocyclic supramolecular systems based on azo-metacyclophane for hypoxia visualisation”;
