The 2017 Young Investigator Awards and the Chris Scanlan Memorial Travel Award were announced at the annual Scripps CHAVI-ID All-Investigators Retreat in La Jolla, CA, to recognize the outstanding contributions and accomplishments made by young scientists during the past year.

Nominations were submitted by CHAVI-ID faculty to the Scientific Leadership Group who selected award recipients unanimously using selection criteria such as publications, collaborations, participation in research meetings and projects, and various other contributions made to HIV/AIDS vaccine research.
