Lange/Van Tongeren Prizes (IAS/ANRS) for Young Investigators
The four US$2,000 IAS/ANRS Lange/van Tongeren Prizes for Young Investigators are jointly funded by the IAS and the France Recherche Nord & Sud Sida-HIV Hépatites (ANRS) to support young researchers who demonstrate innovation, originality, rationale and quality in the field of HIV research. The prizes are granted to the top-scoring abstract in each of the five tracks: Track A – Basic and translational research; Track B – Clinical research; Track C – Epidemiology and prevention research; Track D – Social and political research, law, policy and human rights; and Track E - Implementation research, economics, systems and synergies with other health and development sectors. In 2015, the Young Investigator Prize was permanently renamed in memory of Joep Lange and Jacqueline van Tongeren.
For the International AIDS Conference, in addition to the prize, the Joep Lange Institute will support the five recipients to attend the INTEREST conference (flight, accommodation and registration costs). They will also have the opportunity to participate in a presentation session during the conference.
Eligible candidates are presenting authors of abstracts submitted to AIDS 2018, which meet the following criteria:
- The Scientific Programme Committee has accepted the abstract as an oral presentation, for a poster discussion session or for the poster exhibition;
- The research demonstrates innovation, originality, rationale and quality;
- The presenting author is under 35 years of age.
Abstract submitters do not need to apply for the prize.
All abstracts that meet the criteria will be automatically considered.
