The Michelson Prizes are a $20 million initiative of the Michelson Medical Research Foundation and the Human Vaccines Project. The highly-competitive $150,000 prizes are awarded annually to young investigators under the age of 35 who are using disruptive concepts and inventive processes to significantly advance human immunology and vaccine and immunotherapy discovery research for major global diseases.
The 2020 Michelson Prizes will focus on transformative research in human immunology, with trans-disease applications to accelerate vaccine and immunotherapeutic discovery. Applications are currently being accepted (deadline October 31, 2019). https://www.humanvaccinesproject.org/michelsonprizes/[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
