Nominations will be collated and passed on to the Chair of the Awards Committee each June. The award recipient is selected by vote of the Awards Committee: each committee member reviews the nomination forms and ranks the candidates based on the significance of the accomplishments cited, their relevance to the award, and the timeliness of the nomination. This committee will then vote for the winner. As specified in the ICIS Constitution, the final vote of the Awards Committee is subject to the approval of the ICIS Council.
The nomination deadline for the 2017 Seymour & Vivian Milstein Award for Excellence in Interferon and Cytokine Research is June 1, 2017. Also, nominations are welcome throughout the year. Download the Laureate Nomination Form in PDF format here and submit electronically to the ICIS President.
