The NOMIS Center for Immunobiology and Microbial Pathogenesis at the Salk Institute takes pride in training the next generation of scientific leaders as exemplified through its prestigious NOMIS–Salk Fellowship Program. The fellowship program has supported the careers of many talented postdocs over the last decade, with typically three postdoctoral fellows appointed annually to work on health and immunity research.
The NOMIS–Salk Fellowship Program provides excellent postdoctoral researchers the freedom to pursue big questions at the intersection of two or more scientific disciplines in a collaborative research environment, while also providing outstanding scientific mentorship from proven leaders in their respective fields.
The NOMIS Center for Immunobiology and Microbial Pathogenesis was launched in 2008 with support from the NOMIS Foundation. The center aims to shed light on the molecular mechanisms that cause infectious diseases, define key molecules involved in the body’s response to injury and infection, elucidate the rules of engagement between the body’s microbiome and immune system, and understand why inflammatory processes spin out of control under some circumstances.
