James S Porterfield Prize in International Virology 2017

The 2017 Prize is now open for applications, with a closing date of January 13, 2017

The prize (£750) is awarded by open competition to up to two students of virology registered for a degree at any University worldwide.

The prize can contribute towards the costs of travel, subsistence, fees and expenses of the student in connexion with a piece of research to be conducted by the student at an institution and in a country other than their own.

The criteria for award will be the academic promise of the student and the likely value of the research to science or medicine and the student’s scientific education.

Eligible projects will be those in virology that require international travel, and preference will be given for field or laboratory work on arboviruses.
