AAI Announces Two New Career Programs,
Careers in Immunology Fellowship and the
Travel for Techniques Award
AAI is proud to launch two new initiatives to help support the career development of AAI members.
The Careers in Immunology Fellowship provides Regular AAI members with one year of salary support for a predoctoral student or postdoctoral fellow in their labs.
The Travel for Techniques Program reimburses travel expenses to AAI member scientists who apply for funds to travel to another laboratory specifically to learn a new technique.
AAI mourns the loss of David W. Talmage, M.D. (AAI '54), a past AAI president (1978-1979) and recipient of the AAI Lifetime Achievement Award (1994) who is credited with conceptualizing many central tenets of immunology, in particular those that led to the clonal selection theory. For highlights of Talmage's AAI service and career achievements, and to view his 2012 interview for the AAI Oral History Project, visit his profile in the History section of the AAI site.
