Prizes & Awards
The IAS, together with its partners, sponsors a number of scientific prizes and awards to reward promising researchers who are conducting outstanding work in HIV research.
- IAS/ANRS Lange-van Tongeren Prize for Young Investigators – ANNUAL PRIZES
The US$2,000 Lange/van Tongeren Young Investigator Prizes 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. One prize is presented to the top-scoring abstract in each of the four conference tracks. In 2015, the Young Investigator Prize was permanently renamed in memory of Joep Lange and Jacqueline van Tongeren.
- IAS-ANRS Dominique Dormont Prize – ANNUAL PRIZE
The US$5,000 IAS-ANRS Dominique Dormont prize is funded by the Dominique Dormont Association to support young researchers working on chronic conditions in humans, with a particular focus on the interface between HIV and other chronic diseases. The prize highlights researchers who demonstrate originality, rationale, quality, and a multidisciplinary and integrative approach in the field of HIV and AIDS research.
- Women, Girls and HIV Investigator’s Prize – ANNUAL PRIZE
The vulnerability of women and girls to HIV infection and accelerated disease progression is well-documented. As HIV incidence continues to increase among women and girls, particularly in resource-limited settings, research on gender-related issues, including community-based interventions and investigations, will provide critical evidence and information on which to base our response. One prize is presented to the top-scoring abstract, which encourages research in low- or middle-income countries that can benefit women and girls affected by HIV and AIDS.
- IAS TB/HIV Research Prizes – ANNUAL PRIZES
The two US$1,000 IAS TB/HIV Research Prizes are incentives for young and established researchers to investigate pertinent research questions that affect TB/HIV co-infection and operational effectiveness of implementing core TB/HIV collaborative services. The prizes are presented to the two top-scoring abstracts in any of these areas.
