Michelson Prizes: Next Generation Grants ePanel Features Rising Stars In Immunology & Vaccine Innovation

14 May

On May 14, 2024, Keystone Symposia will host a live ePanel event featuring the recipients of the Michelson Prizes: Next-Generation Grants, an international prize that provides $150,000 in funding to young investigators at a time in their careers when it is most difficult to secure funding for innovative work.

These Next-Generation Grants aim to encourage and support early-career researchers who are applying disruptive concepts and inventive processes to advance human immunology, vaccine discovery, and immunotherapy research. The prize has been awarded annually since 2017 as a collaboration between the Michelson Medical Research Foundation and the Human Immunome Project.

The ePanel event showcases the 2023 award recipients, Drs. Dennis Schaefer-Babajew, Claire Otero, and Siyuan Ding, and their groundbreaking work in vaccine and antibody protection against viruses. (Read more about their innovative work below) Each will present their award-winning research and participate in a live Q&A panel discussion.

Introductory remarks will be made by Dr. Gary Michelson, founder and co-chair of Michelson Philanthropies and the Michelson Medical Research Foundation, and Dr. Hans Keirstead, president and CEO of the Human Immunome Project.
