ANN ARBOR (AP) - A University of Michigan expert in health statistics has won a $625,000 “genius grant” from the Chicago-based John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
Susan Murphy is one of 24 winners of the 2013 MacArthur award.
The foundation says that the 55-year-old Murphy has translated statistical theory into tools that can be used to evaluate and customize treatment regimens for people with chronic or relapsing disorders.
She holds the position of the H. E. Robbins Professor of Statistics at the Ann Arbor school.
