|Professor Nylander-French selected as winner of the MIHS Best Paper Award for 2011|
ESE Professor Leena Nylander-French along with co-authors (and former students) Jennifer M. Thomasen and Kenneth W. Fent has been selected the winner of the Michigan Industrial Hygiene Society (MIHS) Best Paper Award for 2011 for their paper entitled, "Development of a Sampling Patch to Measure Dermal Exposures to Monomeric and Polymeric 1,6-Hexamethylene Diisocyanate: A Pilot Study."
Thomasen is currently an Industrial Hygienist at NC State University and Kenny Fent is an Industrial Hygienist in the Hazard Evaluations & Technical Assistance Branch of the Division of Surveillance, Hazard Evaluations, and Field Studies (DSHEFS) at the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The MIHS "Best Paper" Award was established by MIHS in 1957 as recognition of outstanding publication in the American Industrial Hygiene Association Journal. In 1989, the MIHS Board of Directors voted to also recognize the authors of the "Best Paper" in applied industrial hygiene from the Applied Occupational and Environmental Hygiene Journal. Both journals combined in 2004 to form the current Journal of Occupational and Environmental Hygiene. MIHS continues to present a "Best Paper" award each year to the authors of the outstanding article selected from this journal at the Volunteer Recognition Reception on Tuesday, June 12, 2012, at the American Industrial Hygiene Conference and Exposition.
