Excellence in Scientific Response to a Public Health Emergency–GROUP

This category recognizes groups that participate in the development, adaptation, and/or implementation of scientific methods as part of a coordinated team response to an urgent public health issue. Examples of this might include the application of analytical or laboratory science and/or the rapid evaluation and integration of real-world data into FDA’s response to a declared public health emergency.
