NLM Grantees Receive the Prestigious Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE)

The Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) is the highest honor bestowed annually by the U.S. government on young researchers. Recipients are selected from nomination of scientists whose work is supported by more than 16 Federal departments and agencies. The PECASE awards recognize scientists for “their pursuit of innovative research at the frontiers of science and technology and their commitment to community service.” Since 1996, 193 PECASE recipients have received NIH support, including 5 NLM-funded researchers:

  • Dr. John S. Brownstein (Children's Hospital Boston, 2010) for research titled A Platform for Modeling the Global Impact of Climate Change on Infectious Disease
  • Dr. Bradley A. Malin (Vanderbilt University, 2009) for research titled Technologies to Enable Privacy in Biomedical Databases
  • Dr. Kenneth Mandl (Harvard University, 2004) for research titled Disease Surveillance in Real Time: Geotemporal Methods
  • Dr. Ida Sim (University of California, San Francisco, 1999) for research titled Electronic Knowledge Based Publication of Randomized Trials
  • Dr. Russ Altman (Stanford University, 1997) for research titled Representing Biological Data for Molecular Modeling
