Each year, DCEG recognizes fellows, staff scientists, and staff clinicians for exceptional publications during the previous calendar year. The Division’s Senior Advisory Group judges the competition based on the papers’ impact, innovation, and clarity of thought and language. Four awardees were selected for papers published in 2012.
