Sanofi Pasteur Awards | Travel Grant Awards for Young Investigators from India | ISID New Investigator Award

The deadline for abstract submission for these awards is NOVEMBER 1, 2015.
Abstracts must be submitted electronically according to the guidelines for abstract submission.


Sanofi Pasteur Awards for Communicable Disease Epidemiology were created to stimulate research on and emphasize the importance of applied epidemiology in the field of communicable diseases for the overall improvement of health.

Appropriate research may be based on laboratory investigation (e.g. serotypes of pneumococcus found in invasive disease in children or adults; seroprevalence of hepatitis A according to age), clinical investigation (e.g. risk factors for dengue fever), epidemiologic field work (e.g. morbidity and mortality from influenza, incidence of Lyme disease), health economics (e.g. medical and social costs of influenza, cost-benefit of vaccination program), or a combination of these topics.

Two awards sponsored by Sanofi Pasteur will be presented for the best abstracts accepted for presentation at the Congress. Each award consists of US$ 2,500 in addition to reimbursement of travel, accommodation, and registration expenses for the 17thICID.

Eligibility and Application Procedure:
  1. There are no age or professional requirements for the awards. The sole requirement is the acceptance
    of an abstract indicating outstanding accomplishment in the field of communicable diseases.
  2. All abstracts addressing communicable diseases can be considered for the award.
  3. If you wish to apply for these Awards please check the appropriate box on the 'affirmations' page while submitting your abstract.
