Through a partnership with American Association for the Advancement of Science, Michelson Philanthropies supports young investigators from a wide range of disciplines who apply their expertise to perform research that has a lasting impact on vaccine and immunotherapy. Disciplines may include, but are not limited to, computer science, artificial intelligence/machine learning, protein engineering, nanotechnology, genomics, parasitology and tropical medicine, neurodegenerative diseases, and gene editing. It is the first time Science is partnering to offer a prize focused on immunology and its related fields.
