Janet L. Norwood Award Recipient: Nancy Flournoy

created 05  Aug  2012

Dr. Nancy Flournoy, Professor in the Department of Statistics at the University of Missouri's College of Arts and Sciences, is the recipient of the Eleventh Annual Janet L. Norwood Award for Outstanding Achievement by a Woman in the Statistical Sciences. She will accept the award at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

Dr. Flournoy received her BS and MS in Biostatistics from UCLA and her Ph.D. from the University of Washington. Spanning four decades, her rich diversification in academic appointments range from Directorships at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and NSF's Program in Statistics and Probability, to chairmanships with American University and the University of Missouri (MU). Having recently stepped down as MU's Chair of Statistics, she is now returning from sabbatical as Professor. Her research interests in theoretical and applied statistics include: clinical trials, adaptive sequential designs, transplantation biology and infectious disease, specifically cytomegalovirus at a key point prior to the AIDS epidemic. Notably, her initial collaborative efforts on transplantation research with the team of Dr. E. D. Thomas led to that worthy receiving the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1990. Dr. Flournoy is a long-standing member of many societies such as the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (Fellow, '90 & Council Member, '04-'07); Washington Academy of Sciences (Fellow, '93 & Board of Directors Member, '91 - '92); World Academy of Art Science (Fellow, '92); American Statistical Association (Fellow, '92 & Council Chair, '93-'95); American Association for the and Advancement of Science (Fellow, '93 & Statistics Chair, '01-'04), to name a few.
