For 2024, entrants must be no older than 35 years of age, must hold an M.D., Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D at the time of entry, and have received their degree in the last 10 years. 

The applicant must have done or directed all of the work and it must have been performed in the past three years. While the research may be part of a larger team effort, for the purposes of this Prize, an eligible entrant must be a single individual and the essay must focus on their contribution.

The Prize will be judged on the basis of 1,000-word essay and supporting documents. The essay should describe the innovative research performed by the applicant that reveals  transformative research in human immunology, with trans disease applications to accelerate vaccine and immunotherapeutic discovery.
