The “Dr. Leonardo Satz Award” was created to honor the memory of Leonardo Satz, who tragically passed away in an aircraft crash on October 10, 1997. At that time, Dr. Satz was working as Deputy Director of the Immunogenetics Laboratory at the Hospital de Clínicas of Buenos Aires City and Professor of Immunology at the Faculty of Medicine of the Universidad de Buenos Aires. This award intends to keep in SAI members’ memory the spirit and philosophy of Dr. Satz’s work.
“Dr. Leonardo Satz Award” recognizes the best original work in immunology presented by Ph.D. students during the SAI annual meeting.
