The Michelson Prizes are scientific awards of $150,000 given annually to young investigators who are 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, andNeglected Parasitic Diseases. All focus areas are aimed at supporting research with the potential to transform vaccine and immunotherapy discovery.
A rigorous and competitive global search will identify the most innovative projects from young scientists across a broad spectrum of scientific fields. A distinguished committee of internationally-recognized scientists will review applications. They will be looking for applicants who clearly articulate a vision that challenges current dogma and demonstrates an ability to make a lasting impact on vaccine and immunotherapy research.
The Prizes will be awarded as part of an annual scientific conference on the Future of Vaccine Discovery, which brings together top scientists across disciplines and disease areas.
