ESVE biobank support grant


As part of our objective to further scientific progress in comparative endocrinology, ESVE is keen to promote collaborative, multicentre research projects that advance this field. We are pleased to announce a grant to a maximum of €5,000 to aid gathering of samples for the establishment of biobanks supporting endocrine research. The grant will be awarded in two stages; €2,000 upon award of the grant, and the remaining €3,000 following completion of a progress report.


Any current member of ESVE is eligible to apply.


The purpose of this grant is to support collation of data and samples to aid collaborative research projects. This may include the processing, packaging and shipment of samples. The grant is not intended to fund infrastructure or equipment within any single institution.


Applications should be made using the application form. For further information, please see the Terms and Conditions document. Completed application forms should be sent to


The deadline for receipt of applications for 2019 is March 1st.


The funding provided by ESVE should be acknowledged in publications facilitated by this scheme.

ESVE registry of collaborative endocrine research projects / endocrine biobanks

The coordination of research in comparative endocrinology is one of the major goals of ESVE. A registry of current research projects in which investigators are seeking data and/or research materials as part of multicentre, collaborative research projects is provided below. This may include the establishment of a biobank of clinical material for future research, or the collection of data or clinical material for current defined projects.


If you are interested in displaying a project on the ESVE site, please complete the registry information submission form and email it to together with any additional necessary documentation, as detailed in the submission form. Projects will remain listed on the site for one year. Projects may be listed for shorter or longer periods, upon request.


ESVE is not involved in agreements between principal investigators and contributors of research material or data. All agreements relating to ownership and use of data and material, research methods, ethics approval, shipping requirements, import/export of biological material and acknowledgement should be arranged between the two parties.
