IDSA Congratulates the 2008 Joint Research Award Winners

The IDSA Education and Research Foundation (ERF) and the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) have joined forces to offer the IDSA ERF/NFID Joint Research Awards.  Our goal is to support needed research by promising young researchers who may not otherwise find funding as federal and other institutional research support becomes more difficult to obtain.

Merle A. Sande/Pfizer Fellowship Award in International Infectious Diseases


Ulrike Buchwald, MD, FIDSA, will research neonatal immunization with pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) in infants in Gambia. 

Astellas Young Investigator Awards



Adrianus W. M. van der Velden, PhD, will study the response of CD8+ T cells to Salmonella proteins.

Rebecca Pellett Madan, MD, will evaluate differences in mucosal immunity between HIV-infected and HIV-uninfected adolescent women. 

ASP Young Investigator Award in Geriatrics 


Amie L. Meditz, MD, is examining the impact of aging and exogenous sex hormones on susceptibility to HIV-1 infection.   

Wyeth Young Investigator Award in Vaccine Development


Elizabeth Miller, MD, will study a vaccine candidate that uses dendritic cells that are stimulated with inactivated HIV. 

More information about the 2008 Joint Research Award Winners is available online.
