The winner of the first € 100,000* Parenteral Nutrition Research Grant Latin America will be announced at the FELANPE congress in Guadalajara, Mexico, from September 22-25.
The announcement will be made during our satellite symposium, in Salón 7, on September 24, from 10.45am – 12.45pm (CDT).
The € 100,000* winner will be a healthcare professional with an original research project directly related to the therapeutic area of parenteral nutrition. The funding is for a research project lasting two years, starting in October 2018. Results of the project are expected to be presented at the FELANPE congress in 2020.
Fifty-one applications from nine countries across Latin America were received for the first ever Parenteral Nutrition Research Grant Latin America. The majority of applicants came from Brazil and Mexico. The winner has been chosen by the independent Research Grant Committee, consisting of renowned key opinion leaders in the field of clinical nutrition in Latin America and was chaired by Prof. Isabel Correia, the former FELANPE president.
With this research grant, we’re aiming to encourage and support clinical research, advancing the use of parenteral nutrition across Latin America, within the scope of the ‘United for clinical nutrition’ initiative. Once developed, these insights generated will contribute to improving patient outcomes across the region.
