Apply now for the AIDS Vaccine J2J Training, Bangkok, September 11-15, 2011:
The Journalist 2 Journalist (J2J) Project of the National Press Foundation is offering fellowships to its two-day training program on HIV vaccine research in Bangkok, Thailand, prior to the 11th AIDS Vaccine Conference. This conference will bring together leading scientists and HIV vaccine researchers.
NPF hopes to invite a strong group of international fellows, with special attention to these countries/regions:North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa, Asia. Fellowships that include air travel to and from Bangkok, lodging, per diem, and most meals are open to journalists who have covered HIV/AIDS, health or science for at least three years.
Twenty-two fellowships will be awarded to qualified print, radio/broadcast, and online journalists. Applications are encouraged from reporters with experience covering the social, economic and larger societal impact of HIV/AIDS, as well as the science and medicine. All applicants must have strong English speaking and reading skills.
Having attended the first AIDS Vaccine J2J Training in Paris, 2009, I highly recommend this unique fellowship. In recent years, there have been major advancements in the field of HIV vaccine research, including of course the historic results of the Thai Trial, also known as RV 144. As part of the J2J Vaccine training, you'll learn the necessary terminology and scientific concepts to more effectively report on vaccine research. You'll also hear about the latest developments and trending topics from scientists in the vanguard of vaccine research, all of which will bolster your coverage of the AIDS Vaccine 2011 Conference.
