The Chairs of Excellence are aimed at either strengthening or setting up a research team that works on clearly defined themes that the Synergie Lyon Cancer Foundation wishes to support and develop (cancer escape and therapeutic targeting).
The Chairs of Excellence funded by Synergie Lyon Cancer permit the reception in Lyon of confirmed foreign and French researchers (Senior Chairs of Excellence), and promising young talent (Junior Chairs of Excellence).
The financial aid provided by Synergie Lyon Cancer is limited in time (generally from one to three years). It covers the salary of one or more researchers or research engineers and is completed by an operating subsidy.
Once “boosted” in this way, these teams can then find new funds more easily.
