SANOFI PASTEUR AWARDS FOR COMMUNICABLE DISEASE EPIDEMIOLOGY

The development and propagation of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a global health challenge that affects humans, animals, and the environment. To address AMR at the global level innovative approaches to the identification, tracking, and prevention are urgently needed. 

For many years the Institut Mérieux and its entities have been committed to the fight against AMR and to the control of the spread of resistant infections. To provide an incentive for promising young investigators working in the field of AMR Institut Mérieux allocates numerous awards to researchers and clinicians around the world who are at the beginning of their career in recognition of a major achievement having a significant impact on the control of AMR. This award is given to an investigator based on the work they have completed, rather than the work/research they propose to complete in the future. 

At the end of 2019 Institut Mérieux and the International Society for Infectious Diseases (ISID) will announce the application recipient. The 10,000 euro award will be presented by both institutions on February 20, 2020 at the 19th International Congress on Infectious Diseases (ICID) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. 

All applications are due by October 25, 2019

Decision notifications will be sent on December 15, 2019
