Dr. Prosser is a Professor and Director of the Susan B. Meister Child Health Evaluation and Research Center. Her research focuses on measuring the value of childhood health interventions using methods of decision sciences and economics. Current research topics include newborn screening programs, vaccination programs, and methods for valuing family spillover effects of illness. She also uses quantitative survey methods (health utility assessment, conjoint analysis) to measure health-related quality of life and preferences for health interventions.

Dr. Prosser's research evaluating the cost-effectiveness of vaccination programs has been used in setting national vaccine policy for children and adults. Her work with the Evidence Review Group for the Advisory Committee on Heritable Disorders in Newborns and Children using decision science modeling to project long-term health outcomes for proposed newborn screening programs has been used to inform national newborn screening policy decisions. She is currently a member of the evidence review group for the Advisory Committee on Heritable Disorders in Newborns and Children and the ACIP Zoster Working Group.

Dr. Prosser has contributed to faculty development programs at the department, school, and institutional level. She currently serves as the Assistant Dean for Research Faculty at the Medical School. Dr. Prosser also holds an adjunct faculty appointment at the Harvard School of Public Health.
