LEO Foundation Award 2021

LEO Foundation Award 2021

Region Americas

USD 100,000

A boost to young talents

With our LEO Foundation Awards, we want to recognise the outstanding young researchers and scientists from around the world, whose work represent an extraordinary contribution to skin research and have the potential to pave the way for new and improved treatments for skin diseases.

The LEO Foundation Award was born out of the aim of advancing the understanding and treatment of skin diseases and strengthening the pipeline of excellent dermatology researchers. It recognises promising young talents and hopefully provides a boost to their future careers.

The award is well aligned with the Foundation’s goal of continually promoting and advancing skin research. It is announced in open competition three times a year – once in each of the regions of Americas, EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) and Asia-Pacific.
