The Transportation Research Board’s Fred Burggraf Award, which recognizes excellence in transportation research by researchers 35 years of age or under, was presented to the authors of three award-winning papers on January 22, 2007, at the Thomas B. Deen Distinguished Lecture and Presentation of Outstanding Paper Awards during the Board’s 86th Annual Meeting. The recipients were Hao Tang of Federal Express Corporation and Elise Miller-Hooks of the University of Maryland; Jason Weiss and Gaurav Sant both of Purdue University, and Pietro Lura of the Technical University of Denmark; and Paolo Perco of Trieste University, Italy.

The Burggraf Award, which includes a cash prize, was established in 1966 to stimulate and encourage young researchers to contribute to the advancement of knowledge in the field of transportation. The award was named in honor of Fred Burggraf, who served as TRB’s Executive Director from 1951 until his retirement in 1964.
