Publication Awards for the Boucher Lab

Yan, Fabini, and co-authors, lead by Dr. Lee Katz and Dr. Cheryl Tarr of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), received two prestigious CDC awards in recognition of their paper entitled "Evolutionary dynamics of Vibrio cholerae O1 following a single-source introduction to Haiti," published in the journal mBio on July 2, 2013.

For their work, the group received the James H. Nakano Citation Award from the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID) for one of the best papers of 2013 and a Charles C. Shepard Award nomination (Laboratory Science category) from the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry.
