Research by Ed Kaplan Recognized for Shaping Public Policy
The December issue of OR/MS Today revisited Franz Edelman Award finalists in the not-for-profit sector to see if their research has had lasting value. Professor Ed Kaplan's New Haven Needle Exchange research with Elaine O'Keefe, which won the Edelman Award in 1992, was cited for helping to formulate lasting public policy in this area. "There are now well over 100 needle exchange programs in North America, and the results developed by Kaplan and O'Keefe continue to inform the debate."
Kaplan also was cited in a report submitted by the Centre for Applied Microbiology and Research (CAMR) to the UK Parliament. He was included in a list of international collaborators in emergency planning and preparedness.
