Julia Bodmer Award 2023 - call for applications

Applications are invited for the prestigious Julia Bodmer Award, to be delivered on Wednesday 26th April 2023 during the Opening Ceremony at the 36th EFI conference in Nantes, France. 

The Julia Bodmer Award is given to a young scientist in recognition of their outstanding work within the Immunogenetics field. The Award also acknowledges the laboratory in which the scientist has performed their research. Any member of EFI can propose a candidate for the Julia Bodmer Award. 

The application must include the candidate’s CV with a list of publications and a letter of support from the head of the candidate’s laboratory. Candidates must be an EFI member (or become a member at the time of application) and be no more than 10 years past completion of their doctoral thesis if applicable; candidates who have not undertaken or completed a doctoral thesis are also eligible. All applications will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee who will make the final decision on who will receive the Award. 

In addition to the presentation at the Opening Ceremony of the EFI Conference, the Award winner will also be invited to contribute a dedicated “Julia Bodmer Review” to HLA, the official journal of EFI. He/she will receive €1000, in addition to the expenses for registration, travel and lodging for attending the EFI Conference.
