Professor Min Wu, Ph.D., along with his postdoctoral fellow in the UND Department of Biomedical Sciences, Ping Lin, Ph.D., has been named an American Association of Immunologists (AAI) “2020 AAI Careers in Immunology Fellow.” The pair are one of this year’s 25 international faculty/postdoc awardee teams to be given the AAI designation.

The award brings with it a grant of up to $57,500 to support Dr. Lin as he pursues research relating to host-pathogen interaction involving emerging pathogens, including SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) in 2020.

As the AAI’s award announcement noted, the AAI Careers in Immunology Fellowship program supports the career development of both AAI regular and trainee members by providing one year of salary support to predoctoral students and postdoctoral fellows.

The award begins Sept. 1, 2020, and ends Aug. 31, 2021.
