The Chiara D'Onofrio Foundation was established to honor the memory of Chiara D'Onofrio, who dedicated her scientific career to the study of the complex mechanisms of immunology. The Foundation promotes studies and research in the field of cell and molecular biology and intends to promote an integrated vision of science and philosophy.
SIBBM supports, together with the Foundation, the “Senior” Chiara D'Onofrio Award, which recognizes scientific excellence for research in the field of molecular mechanisms of cell growth and differentiation and it is destined to Italian researchers working abroad who are below 42 years of age. SIBBM also supports the “Junior” Chiara D'Onofrio Award. The prize is awarded to the best oral communication at the SIBBM Seminar by PhD students or Postdocs pre-selected to speak on the basis of the submitted abstract.
