SMI is a society with members around the world

Congratulations and Appreciation

We are pleased to announce the following recipients of ICMI 2017 travel awards. SMI offers congratulations to all who were selected and a sincere thank you to all who applied. This year, 65 awards were granted – totaling over $77,000! This amount would not be possible without the generous contribution made by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in support of attendance for scientists from low- to middle-income countries.

Low- to Middle- Income Country Travel Award

Sponsored by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation

The purpose of this award is to support immunology research in Low- to Middle-Income Countries by helping to offset some of the cost of attending ICMI 2017. It will provide these researchers with learning and collaboration opportunities that will help them further the field of immunology in their home countries.
