Objectiu de la convocatòria
The 2021 Michelson Prizes funds young researchers who are using disruptive research concepts and inventive processes to significantly advance the development of vaccines and immunotherapies for major global diseases.
Característiques principals
The 2021 Michelson Prizes will be looking for research proposals in two areas:
  • Human Immunology and Vaccine Research: The committee will be looking for research aimed at tackling the current roadblocks that exist in human vaccine development and expanding our limited understanding of key immune processes that are fundamental to successful vaccine and immunotherapy development.
  • Climate Change and Human Immunology: Climate change has a profound effect on human health; pollution and other environmental stressors related to climate change increase susceptibility to disease, especially in vulnerable populations. Harnessing the immune system will be critical to mitigate negative health impacts. The committee is looking for research that expands our understanding of the potential effects of climate change on immune function with a particular interest in research that will directly translate into vaccine and immunotherapy development to mitigate its impact.
    For both prizes, the committee will be looking for research that is highly innovative and impactful, with the potential to be applied across many diseases.
    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, nanotechnology, environmental health, etc., are encouraged to apply.
