The Roger Detels Distinguished Researcher Award in Infectious Disease Epidemiology will be awarded to an outstanding scholar or researcher with extraordinary contributions to the research field of infectious disease epidemiology, or an individual whose work has had a critical impact on infectious disease epidemiology methodology.
Distinguished accomplishment, scientific contribution, and leadership impact in the field are criteria that are considered for a successful application.
Candidates must be a member of SER at any career stage. Epidemiologists in academia, government and the private sector are eligible. Candidates must be nominated by at least one SER member. Self-nomination will not be accepted. Multiple nominations do not increase the likelihood of being awarded. In the case of multiple nominations for a single candidate, submitters will be contacted to coordinate a joint nomination.
The winner of the competition receives $5,000 reimbursed travel expenses and/or an honorarium, to attend and present at SER’s annual meeting, held in June of each year.
This Award is Sponsored by University of California, Los Angeles, Fielding School of Public Health (UCLA-SPH)
