The Milstein Young Investigator Awards

The Milstein Young Investigator Awards are bestowed upon individuals who have made an impact on interferon and cytokine research early in their careers. This year’s Milstein Awards will presented on Oct. 29, 2017 at the Annual ICIS meeting in Kanazawa, Japan.

ICIS members who attend the 2017 ICIS meeting in Kanazawa, Japan and who have received a Ph.D or M.D. within the previous 10 years are eligible. Every year up to five awards are granted to individuals who have made notable contributions to either basic or clinical research. This award is provided by a generous gift of the Milstein Family.

ICIS members may apply themselves or nominate other members for Milstein Young Investigator Awards. Senior laboratory advisers are encouraged to have their associates apply. A curriculum vitae and letter of recommendation should accompany the application.

This year the Milstein Young Investigator Awards will be presented on Sunday, Oct. 29, 2017 at the Annual Meeting of the ICIS in Kanazawa, Japan.
