Epidemiology faculty members receive Salomon Research Awards

July 16, 2013

Yen-Tsung Huang and Brandon D.L. Marshall, both assistant professors in the Epidemiology Department, have each been awarded a 2013 Richard B. Salomon Faculty Research Award. The Salomon Awards allow faculty members to develop new research programs by providing funding for research projects of exceptional merit. The award will permit Huang to investigate lung cancer survival by modeling gene-environment and gene-gene interactions. Marshall will develop an agent-based model to examine how sets of interventions may optimize the prevention of HIV transmission among injecting drug users.
