Stanford University’s Sherri Rose Honored for Her Work on Using Statistics to Improve Healthcare

Sherri Rose, an associate professor of medicine and a core faculty member at Stanford Health Policy in the Freeman Spogli Institute, has won this year’s Gertrude M. Cox Award for her work applying statistics to improve health care.

The award from the Washington Statistical Society and RTI International recognizes a mid-career statistician who has made significant contributions to applied statistics. The award is named for Gertrude Cox, an American statistician who was the first woman elected to the International Statistical Institute in 1949, and later became president of the American Statistical Association.

Dr. Rose joined the Stanford faculty in 2020 after teaching at Harvard Medical School. She develops statistical machine learning approaches to improve human health, through risk adjustment, comparative effectiveness research, and health program evaluations.

“I’m honored to receive the Gertrude M. Cox Award,” Dr. Rose said. “This recognition further highlights the important role of statistics in tackling the immense challenges we face in health care, particularly for marginalized groups.”

Dr. Rose is a graduate of George Washington University in Washington, D.C., where she majored in statistics. She holds a Ph.D. in biostatistics from the University of California Berkeley.
