EPI researcher’s paper selected as one of the “Best Papers of 2014”

The international journal Risk Analysis has chosen Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) and Emerging Pathogens Institute’s Arie Havelaar’s paper, “Impact of Acquired Immunity and Dose-Dependent Probability of Illness on Quantitative Microbial Risk Assessment,” as one of the best papers of 2014. The paper, which was co-written with researcher Arno Swart, presents a study that urges the public health community to carefully take acquired immunity into account in order to improve estimates of the potential impacts of infectious diseases and to assist in preventing and managing them.

Risk Analysis is published by the Society for Risk Analysis (SRA), a multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, scholarly, international society that provides an open forum for all those who are interested in risk analysis. The Best Paper Awards are given to papers from that year that have made the most significant impacts to the theory or practice of risk analysis.
