External Funding Opportunities

The VP&S Office for Research often receives invitations for our investigators to apply to external research funding opportunities. When these opportunities specifically target our researchers or request the Office for Research to nominate a specific candidate, they are posted below.

Michelson Prizes 

The Michelson Prizes are scientific awards of $150,000 given annually to young investigators who are applying disruptive concepts and inventive processes to advance human immunology, vaccine discovery, and immunotherapy research across major global diseases.

The 2020 Michelson Prizes will focus on transformative research in human immunology, with trans-disease applications to accelerate vaccine and immunotherapeutic discovery. We will be looking for high-impact and highly innovative research that has the potential to be applied across many diseases and to significantly expand our understanding of the human immune system.

Deadline for initial applications: October 31, 2019
