Elizabeth Halloran, a professor of biostatistics and of epidemiology at the University of Washington School of Public Health, has been elected to the Washington State Academy of Sciences, according to an announcement July 15 by the academy. She is among seven new members for 2020 who hail from the UW.
Halloran, a world leader in using mathematical and statistical methods to study infectious disease, was chosen by virtue of her election to the National Academy of Medicine in 2019. Halloran is also a faculty member in Fred Hutch's Vaccine and Infectious Disease and Public Health Sciences divisions.
New members are to be inducted at the annual members meeting, which is currently scheduled for September. The new members are lauded for “their outstanding record of scientific and technical achievement and their willingness to work on behalf of the academy to bring the best available science to bear on issues within the state of Washington.”
