The Michelson Prizes for Human Immunology and Vaccine Research will award $150,000 prizes to two young investigators under the age of 35 who are applying innovative research concepts to significantly advance the development of future vaccines and immunotherapies for major global diseases.
To be considered, applicants must show how they are going beyond conventional approaches in their field and how their contribution will make a lasting impact on human immunology and vaccine research. Early career scientists across a wide array of disciplines, including biomedical, bioengineering and computer science fields, are encouraged to apply.
Prizes will be awarded in June 2018 as part of a scientific conference on the Convergence of Human Immunology and Vaccine Research.
The Michelson Medical Research Foundation together with the Human Vaccines Project have established these prizes with the ultimate goal of broadening understanding of the immune system to give the scientific community new tools to prevent and control disease, potentially saving millions of lives around the world.
Pre-application deadline is Feb. 12, 2018.
