Second Lieutenant Kenneth Grosselin, a Pardee RAND student, received one of the U.S. Air Force Academy Research Awards on Friday, January 15, 2010. Located at the Air Force Academy, the Institute for National Security Studies presents the Major General Robert E. Linhard Outstanding INSS Researcher Award each year to one of today's rising strategic thinkers whose work best represents General Linhard's legacy of strategic vision and active mentorship in building strategic leaders. The award consists of a plaque and a $2,000 INSS research grant.

Along with Dr. Frances Pilch, Lieutenant Grosselin was honored for his work on "Super Bugs, Resurgent and Emerging Diseases, and Pandemics: A National Security Perspective". Their insight on a significant and timely strategic topic has earned praise from the policy community and senior staff leaders at Headquarters Air Force and the Department of Defense, and it represents a must-read set of recommendations for pandemic planning and response management. INSS has published this work as part of its "Research Reports" series.
