Call for Nominations: Outstanding Contributions to Epidemiology Award
The American College of Epidemiology invites nominations for its annual Outstanding Contributions to Epidemiology Award.
This award recognizes an active epidemiologist for outstanding contribution to the field in one of three areas: 1) Methods; 2) Etiologic Research; or 3) Applied Epidemiology. The award is conferred each year at the Annual Meeting and the recipient will have the opportunity to deliver a platform talk to the College. The specific topic will be decided on jointly by the recipient and the Awards and Program Committee Chairs. The Award includes an honorarium of $3,000. Furthermore, the cost of annual meeting-related transportation, accommodation, and registration expenses will be covered by the College.
The eligibility criteria for each award area are described below:
1) Methods: An Outstanding Contribution in Methods Award recognizes an active epidemiologist for exemplary work in theoretical or applied research methodology. Eligible nominees should have a strong record of peer-reviewed publications on methods in epidemiology or related disciplines (e.g., statistics, social sciences, etc.).
2) Etiologic Research: An Outstanding Contribution in Etiologic Research Award recognizes an active epidemiologist for exemplary work in etiologic research of a specific health condition or group of conditions of public health significance. Eligible nominees should have a strong record of peer-reviewed publications on etiologic research in epidemiology or related disciplines (e.g., clinical, basic science, etc.).
3) Applied Epidemiology: An Outstanding Contribution in Applied Epidemiology Award recognizes an active epidemiologist for exemplary work in translating epidemiologic evidence to clinical, public health, or health policy applications. Although the eligible nominee is anticipated to have peer-reviewed publications regarding some aspect of this translational work, it is possible that the meritorious contributions of a nominee are primarily documented in unpublished reports or proceedings. If so, some representation of this work should be accessible to the committee for review.
Active ACE members (Associate, Member, Fellow, Honorary Fellow or Emeritus) are invited to nominate eligible candidates for this award.
1) A statement of the Award category: Methods, Etiologic Research, or Applied Epidemiology
2) A narrative description of the particular contribution or collection of contributions prompting the nomination. For example, a single high-impact publication could be sufficient for a nomination, as could a collection of work. Regardless, this description should document how the contribution has influenced the field of epidemiology and/or related fields as well as any direct population health impact.
3) Examples of work (e.g. papers, reports, etc.) need not be attached to the nomination letter, but a select list of relevant examples that can be accessed by the committee would be helpful.
Furthermore, a copy of the nominee's curriculum vitae should be submitted with the nomination letter.
The deadline for receipt of nominations for the 2014 Award is April 30, 2014.
