Program for attracting and promoting research talent for clinician-scientists

The Biomedicine International training research programme for excellent clinician-scientists (BITRECS), is a grant program that began in 2017 and which receives funding from the European Commission and the “La Caixa” Foundation to recruit excellent and motivated postdoctoral researchers with a clinician-scientist profile. They are expected to implement a 36-month research proposal while they join one of the available mobility schemes: 1) Incoming: 12-18 months at a foreign research center and 18-24 months at IDIBAPS; 2) Outgoing: 36 months at IDIBAPS.
