Rose G. Radin, PhD, MPH

RRadinEntered BURPPE program September 2009
Graduated 2014

My clinical shadowing experience gave me extensive access to observe the medical team at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Maternal Fetal Medicine Practice. Epidemiologists study people in the real world; therefore, insight into the realities of diagnostics and health care delivery in this specialized setting provided important preparation for my research career.

Brief Biography

Rose is interested in etiologic research of women’s reproductive health disorders. Her involvement in prospective cohort studies has also piqued her interest in data collection and analysis, so another career goal is to improve upon methods of data collection and analysis for reproductive epidemiology in terms of validity and efficiency. She obtained her B.S. in economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2002 and worked at the global humanitarian organization Oxfam America on social justice campaigns and program evaluation. In 2009, Rose received her M.P.H. with academic distinction from Boston University and enrolled in the doctoral program. Rose defended her thesis and graduated in 2014. Dr. Radin is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow with Dr. Enrique Schisterman, Epidemiology branch chief and senior investigator at the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD).
