Date:12/17/2009

SEATTLE, Dec. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center scientist M. Elizabeth "Betz" Halloran, M.D., M.P.H., D.S.c., has been awarded the distinction of AAAS Fellow. Election as a Fellow is an honor bestowed upon members of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, or AAAS, by their peers.

Halloran is a researcher in the Hutchinson Center's Vaccine and Infectious Disease Institute and a professor of biostatistics at the University of Washington. She is being honored, according to the AAAS, "for her integration of sophisticated mathematical modeling of infectious-disease dynamics with strong foundations in the design and analysis of field studies."

Halloran is among the world's leaders in the field of biomathematics and biostatistics to study the spread of infectious diseases. Her expertise is sought widely in the struggle against new and resurgent infectious diseases. During the last few years she and colleagues have consulted with federal and state officials and have been consulted by world health organizations to help develop intervention plans to control potential pandemics, such as avian and swine influenza.

Halloran's work focuses on statistics and study design to help predict the spread of disease and simulate intervention strategies to save lives. A book she co-authored, "Design and Analysis of Vaccine Studies" was published earlier this year by Springer. Halloran also is the founder of the new Summer Institute in Statistics and Modeling in Infectious Diseases offered by the Department of Biostatistics at the University of Washington, where she is a professor.

The Hutchinson Center's Vaccine and Infectious Disease Institute (VIDI) was formed in 2007. Its researchers aim to eliminate or reduce the mortality and morbidity of the major infectious diseases of humankind. In addition to vaccine development for HIV and other diseases, VIDI research focuses on
