Abstract

The APA Awards for Distinguished Scientific Contributions are presented to persons who, in the opinion of the Committee on Scientific Awards, have made distinguished theoretical or empirical contributions to basic research in psychology. Two of the 2016 award winners are Terrie E. Moffitt and Avshalom Caspi, who received this shared award for “innovative research and theory on mental health and human development,” in which they have demonstrated “how early life experiences shape health disparities and how genetic factors shape and are shaped by environmental factors.” Moffitt’s and Caspi’s shared award citation, biography, and a selected bibliography are presented here.
