Alison P. Galvani, Ph.D., assistant professor of epidemiology, has received a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship for her research on the public perception of influenza vaccination policies. Guggenheim Fellows are appointed not only on the basis of past achievements, but on the promise for exceptional future achievements. The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation was established in 1925 by former United States Senator Simon Guggenheim and his wife in memory of their son. The Foundation supports individuals in the fields of natural sciences, social sciences, humanities and creative arts.
