The Michelson Prizes: Next Generation Grants are annual awards of $150,000, which support young investigators who are working to significantly advance human immunology and vaccine and immunotherapy discovery research for major global diseases. The Prizes are awarded by Human Immunome Project and the Michelson Medical Research Foundation (MMRF).
The 2023 Michelson Prizes are looking for research proposals aimed at tackling the current roadblocks in human vaccine development and expanding our limited understanding of key immune processes that are fundamental to successful vaccine and immunotherapy development. While the Michelson Prizes are focused on research in the fields of immunology, vaccine and immunotherapy discovery, applicants from the full spectrum of related disciplines, including clinical research, biochemistry, molecular biology, protein engineering, computer science, artificial intelligence/machine learning, biophysics, environmental health, nanotechnology, etc., are encouraged to apply (link to application portal here).
Applications close on June 11, 2023.
