Call for Applications for the 2019 Michelson Prizes

The Michelson Prizes are annual scientific awards to young investigators under age 35, applying disruptive research concepts and inventive processes to advance vaccine and immunotherapy research for major global diseases.

The 2019 Michelson Prizes have been expanded to include three focus areas:

  • Human Immunology
  • Computational Biology and Protein Engineering
  • Neglected Parasitic Diseases

The review committee will be looking for applicants who clearly articulate a vision that challenges current dogma and demonstrates an ability to look beyond convention to make a lasting impact on vaccine research.
