Sanofi Pasteur Awards for Communicable Disease Epidemiology were created to stimulate research on and emphasize the importance of applied epidemiology in the field of communicable diseases for the overall improvement of health.

Appropriate research may be based on laboratory investigation (e.g., serotypes of pneumococcus found in invasive disease in children or adults; seroprevalence of hepatitis A according to age), clinical investigation (e.g., risk factors for dengue fever), epidemiologic field work (e.g., morbidity and mortality from influenza, incidence of Lyme disease), health economics (e.g., medical and social costs of influenza, cost-benefit of vaccination program), or a combination of these topics.

Two awards sponsored by Sanofi Pasteur will be presented for the best abstracts accepted for presentation at the Congress. Each award consists of US$ 2,500 in addition to reimbursement of travel, accommodation, and registration expenses for the 14th ICID.

Eligibility and Application Procedure:
There are no age or professional requirements for the awards. The sole requirement is the acceptance of an abstract indicating outstanding accomplishment in the field of epidemiology of communicable diseases. All abstracts addressing communicable diseases will be considered for the award. Members of the ISID Executive Committee and Council, staff and employees of Sanofi Pasteur or their affiliates are not eligible. Final selection of the candidates will be based on the recommendation of the ISID Program Committee with the agreement of the Medical and Scientific Directors of Sanofi Pasteur.

The awards will be presented by a member of the ISID Executive Committee and a representative of the Medical Affairs Department of Sanofi Pasteur during the Opening Ceremony on Tuesday, March 9, 2010. The recipients' names as well as brief descriptions of their work will be published in ISID News, an official publication of the International Society for Infectious Diseases. Awardees will also be honored at a dinner hosted by the sponsors.
