To enhance possibilities for younger individuals, a mentoring experience has been incorporated into the Primary Immunodeficiency Disease Consortium.
Future research achievements in the PIDD are dependent on the entry of new physician/scientists into this field. Information about the availability of opportunities is incorporated into the USIDNET web page. Included are applications and links to apply for educational enrichment programs such as the USIDNET short term training program and the annual 5 day PIDD Summer School program.
The mentoring component of USIDNET includes other specific programs for those considering a career in the PIDD. Each year, traveling scholarships are awarded to individuals to attend national or international meetings with a focus on Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases.
