Young Star Researcher Award– AMD

The “Young Star Researcher Award– AMD” specifically targets newly recruited young researchers to help launch their careers, including increasing their chances of success in competitions of major granting agencies. This 10 000$ award will be awarded by the VHRN to recipients of the AMD research grant who have been employed as researchers for less than two years by an institution recognized by the FRQS. This award is intended for the principal investigator who endorses the application. The Young Star Researcher Award can be awarded only once to the same researcher.


The RRSV supports workshops where researchers work together to identify research priorities and develop AMD structuring projects likely to have a significant impact for patients with AMD.

Summer School

The organization of Summer Schools on AMD is also encouraged and the VHRN may help finance a summer school in AMD within his means.
