The partnership between UniCredit and AIRC - Italian Association for Cancer Research - has been going on since 8 years, and shows how our Group is deeply committed in the research.
In 2001 UniCredit Group started supporting AIRC by setting a found, destined to 60 three years Study Grants for young researchers engaged in cancer research.
Thanks to the partnership between UniCredit and AIRC our grant's holders were able to carry on with concrete projects and their own professional growth.
In the www.airc.unicreditgroup.eu microsite, you can find the interview to Maria Pennati, a researcher that gained one of our grants for the period 2003-2005.
In this video, Maria Pennati tells about the personal experiences that led her on this path and how UniCredit - thanks to the excellent financial support provided through its companies and the network of branches - helped her in pursuing a project on new therapies in the oncological field.
Our three-year grant has been essential to our researcher to get important results, that are published in scientific journals today.
