Description:This 1986 photograph depicted the Centers for Disease Control Director at that time, Dr. James O. Mason (right), handing out the first Charles C. Shepard Science Award to agency staff member Gloria W. Ajello, M.S.
The Charles C. Shepard Science Award was established to recognize excellence in scientific achievement by CDC and ATSDR authors, and to honor the memory of Charles C. Shepard. A hallmark of Dr. Shepard's long career at CDC was his pursuit of scientific excellence, including many contributions to the study of rickettsial diseases. The award is presented to the best manuscript of original research published by a CDC or ATSDR scientist in a reputable, peer-reviewed journal. Manuscripts are judged on scientific criteria including originality, creativity, difficulty, efficiency, clarity, importance, and significance to the prevention of disease and injury.
