This award, established in 1998 for young women investigators working in cytokine, chemokine and interferon biology, is made possible through the generosity of the Fleischmann Family and is dedicated to the memory of ISICR member and outstanding interferon research scientist Christina Fleischmann. The award was established in early 1998, with the first award presented to Xiaoxia Li, Ph.D., who’s now the Paul L. Fox, PhD, Endowed Chair in Molecular Medicine at the Lerner Research Institute, Cleveland, USA, at the joint ISICR/ICS meeting in Jerusalem. She went on to win the Milstein Award in 2013.
