A Yale School of Public Health researcher and CIRA affiliated scientist is one of the 2016 recipients of the NIH Director’s New Innovator Award. The prestigious award funds the work of investigators who are conducting highly creative, innovative research in the early stages of their careers.

Forrest W. Crawford, Ph.D., assistant professor of biostatistics and of ecology and evolutionary biology, and a member of CIRA's Interdisciplinary Research Methods Core, was granted the award for his project, titled "Network-based epidemiology for hidden and hard-to-reach populations." Through development of novel statistical and computational methods, Crawford aims to dramatically improve epidemiological surveillance for hidden and hard-to-reach populations.
