Rochester Vaccine Postdoctoral Fellowship
The Rochester Vaccine Fellowship is awarded annually to an outstanding postdoctoral fellow working in the area of vaccine-related research, who is mentored by a faculty member with a primary or secondary appointment in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology.
This fund was created by a donation from Dr. Michael Pichichero in honor of Dr. Porter Anderson (Professor Emeritus of Pediatrics in Infectious Diseases), who co-invented the widely administered vaccine for bacterial meningitis.
Applications are requested and should consist of:
- A brief (1 page or less) statement of research
- CV of the applicant fellow
- Short letter of support from the advisor
Approximately $5000 per year is available and can be used to support research supplies and/or travel to present at national and international scientific meetings or symposia. Salaries are not supported. Successful applications will emphasize vaccine-related research. This is a one-year, non-renewable award.
