Awards Committee

Three members of the Awards committee are elected by the AAI membership, and three members are appointed by Council. Members serve staggered three-year terms. The role of the committee is to:
  • nominate for Council consideration AAI members eligible for a variety of awards and honors from outside AAI, as well as awards sponsored by AAI
  • explore possibilities and opportunities for the establishment of other AAI awards.


The AAI Awards Committee is dedicated to recognizing outstanding achievement by and the professional promise of investigators in the immunology field. The committee is responsible for reviewing nominations and applications, and for recommending recipients to Council, for designated AAI Career Awards and AAI Travel Awards.
