IEIIS Announces Travel Awards for Women in Science In Honor of Theresa L. Gioannini

In honor of Dr. Theresa L. Gioannini (1949-2014), the International Endotoxin and Innate Immune Society (IEIIS) has announced new travel awards for women in science. The awards will be used to support the attendance and participation of women graduate students, post-docs, and junior faculty at IEIIS-sponsored meetings. For more information and an application link, see www.ieiis.org.

In addition, they are currently setting up a summer research fellowship in Theresa’s memory. One student will be selected each summer from Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, an all-women’s catholic college that Theresa attended, to conduct research at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine.
