The award is the highest honor bestowed by the US government on science and engineering professionals in the early stages of their research careers. The Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers was established by President Clinton in 1996. Awardees are selected for their pursuit of innovative research at the frontiers of science and technology and their commitment to community service as demonstrated through scientific leadership, public education, or community outreach. This year, 105 researchers will receive the award.

Dr. Reed is being recognized for her work in the epidemiology of seasonal and pandemic influenza at the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, one of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

She holds both a master’s and a doctorate from BU.
