FIRA-FPS Grant 2022

The objective of this call is to attract talented researchers called to play the role of scientific coordinator and “bridge scientist” between FIRA, representing the investigators associated to the Italian Society of Rheumatology (SIR), and FPS. The researcher who wins the call will have to promote and facilitate research initiatives of SIR associates, approved by FIRA, which may need the technologies and expertise of FPS.

The recipient of this grant will also supervise and be principal investigator (PI) of the study titled “The Womb Microbiota in Rheumatoid Arthritis (WomanRA)” identified by the FIRA scientific committee as a starting strategic study for the development of an innovative line of research in the field of Rheumatology.

Individual scientists are invited to submit their CV and their strategic vision for the implementation and promotion of the partnership project covered by this call. With these FIRA-FPS grants, researchers will have the opportunity to pursue their scientific vision of the project by having full access to the state-of-the-art technology platforms available at FPS.
