Applications for Grants for US students & postdocs


Thanks to the generous support of the board of the Paul W. Zuccaire Foundation, we are delighted to offer travel awards to young American scientists who wish to attend the June 21-25, 2010 congress at the Institut Pasteur entitled “Viruses of Microbes.”  Inspired to support cross-cultural exchanges by its namesake, Paul W. Zuccaire, the Zuccaire Foundation has been a faithful supporter of the Pasteur Foundation particularly with regard to advancing the careers of young U.S. scientists by way of opportunities at the Institut Pasteur.
