There are two awards (€ 1250,- each). Deadline for applications is October 15th 2017. To see more details about how to apply please click here.

About the Paradifference Foundation. The Gustavsson family founded the Paradifference Foundation in February 2014. Their eldest daughter Amanda developed her first paraganglioma tumor in 2008, and today it has spread to her bones (metastatic paraganglioma). Since 2011 they know that this is caused due to the SDHB mutation. The foundation describes their aim as follows: Our aim is to financially support research in the field of paraganglioma and pheochromocytoma, with special regard to malignant paragangliomas caused by the SDHB mutation.  We hope to aid in the development of more efficient treatment, and essentially finding a cure for the disease. As part of this aim, we want to encourage young scientists to conduct research within the field, and want to ensure that promising scientists are enabled a career within paraganglioma research. Therefore we have decided to fund these awards.
