IUIS Travel Grants

October 14, 2013


30 winners of the Bill & Milenda Gates Foundation grants distributed by IUIS to attend the ICI meeting in Milan, August, 2013

2013 is the first year that IUIS succeeded to obtain substantial support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to create travel grants for young immunologists from developing countries.  It enabled IUIS to give grants to 36 people working in non-OECD countries so that they could attend the ICI in Milan.
There were approximately 700 applicants for the 36 grants. The winners were selected based upon the quality of their work as described in the abstract they submitted to the congress. “The grants gave them the opportunity to meet and talk to the people they had only read about in textbooks and scientific journals. Providing such wonderful opportunities is one of the aims of IUIS,” commented Jorge Kalil, IUIS’s newly elected president.
