Two scientists from the Battelle Life Science Research team have been nominated for the 2016 Charles C. Shepard Science Award. Nancy Niemuth, Statistician, and Dr. Carol Sabourin, Senior Research Leader and Chief Scientist, were nominated along with their collaborators for their paper Bridging non-human primate correlates of protection to reassess the Anthrax Vaccine Adsorbed booster schedule in humans.
Since 1985, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) have presented the Charles C. Shepard Science Award to authors of the most outstanding peer-reviewed research papers published by CDC/ATSDR scientists during the preceding year. The award recognizes scientific achievement at CDC/ATSDR and honors the memory of Dr. Charles C. Shepard, whose career was marked by the pursuit of scientific excellence. Presently, in addition to honoring publications in four categories – Assessment; Prevention and Control; Laboratory Science; and Data Methods and Study Design – there is also an award for Lifetime Scientific Achievement.
Nomination for the Shepard Science Award is given in recognition of special contribution to the mission of CDC/ATSDR and to public health. The winners for the different categories will be revealed at a ceremony on June 8 on the CDC Roybal Campus at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Congratulations to Nancy, Carol and their colleagues from the CDC.
