2011 MIDAS Summer Research Fellow Named 2012 Rhodes Scholarship Winner

finalCory J. Rodgers—a 2011 MIDAS Summer Research Fellow at the University of Pittsburgh’s MIDAS National Center of Excellence—has been named a 2012 Rhodes Scholarship winner. During the MIDAS summer program, he worked with Dr. Eunha Shim, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Epidemiology at the Graduate School of Public Health at Pitt, on a project entitled "The cost-benefit analysis of pertussis vaccination among health care personnel with consideration of provisional recommendations by the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices in 2011." Rodgers studied at the University of Pittsburgh’s Honors College and the Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences and received his BPhil degree in Africana studies and the history and philosophy of science, as well as a BS degree in biological sciences with a minor in chemistry in 2011.

Rodgers is the seventh winner of the prestigious Rhodes Scholarship to have received a Pitt undergraduate education, the fourth in the past seven years. There are only 14 universities or colleges in the United States who have claimed the award at least four times in the last seven years. Pitt is one of only two public institutions to have done so; the other 12 are private schools.
