NIOSH Nominates 10 Studies for Scientific Awards

NIOSH has nominated 10 outstanding studies by the agency's researchers for a prestigious scientific award for 2008, and one nomination for the award's lifetime scientific achievement category.

The 2008 Charles C. Shepard Science Award is sponsored by CDC, of which NIOSH is a part, and honors excellence in science at CDC during the year 2007; the winners will be announced later this year.

"The articles nominated for the 2008 award illustrate the wide range of issues addressed by NIOSH in its research to prevent work-related injuries and illnesses, the complex challenges that those problems entail, and the advanced scientific tools and knowledge that our scientists bring to our mission,” said NIOSH Director John Howard, M.D.

The studies NIOSH nominated were published in peer-reviewed scientific journals. The 10 papers were nominated in the categories of Assessment and Epidemiology, Laboratory and Methods, and Prevention and Control.
