Michelle Odden, PhD
Associate Professor of Epidemiology
Department of Health Research and Policy
Michelle Odden, PhD, is an associate professor of epidemiology in the Department of Health Research and Policy at Stanford University. Her research aims to improve our understanding of the optimal preventive strategies for chronic disease in older adults, particularly those who have been underrepresented in research including the very old, frail, and racial/ethnic minorities. Her work has focused on prevention of cardiovascular and kidney outcomes, as well as preservation of physical and cognitive function in older adults. She is also strongly interested in epidemiological and statistical methods to reduce biases in observational studies. Dr. Odden came to Stanford from Oregon State University, where she helped build the new College of Public Health and Human Sciences. She completed her PhD in epidemiology at UC Berkeley (2009) and a postdoctoral fellowship in primary care research at UCSF (2011).
