Robert S. Gordon, Jr. Lecture in Epidemiology

The Gordon Lecture is awarded annually to a scientist who has contributed significantly to the field of epidemiology or clinical trials research. The NIH grants the lectureship on the recommendation of the NIH Epidemiology and Clinical Trials Interest Group.

Early-Stage Investigator Lecture

The Early-Stage Investigator Lecture recognizes early-career prevention scientists who have not competed successfully for a substantial NIH-supported research project, but who have already made substantial, outstanding research contributions to their respective fields and are poised to become future leaders in prevention research.
