Biostatistics @ NCSU
The Department of Statistics at NCSU
hosts or is involved in several important biostatistics initiatives:
- Innovative Methods Program for Advancing Clinical
Trials (IMPACT) -- IMPACT is a program involving
biostatistician and clinical investigators at NCSU, the University
of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Duke University and is funded primarily
by a National Cancer Institute Program Project (P01 CA142538) grant
entitled "Statistical Methods for Cancer Clinical Trials." I am the
NCSU PI of the grant, along with Michael Kosorok at
Kouros Owzar at Duke. The project has been renewed for another
five years (2015-2020).
- Personalized Medicine Discovery Faculty Research
Cluster -- I am Cluster Coordinator for this research
group, which was established under the Chancellor's Faculty Excellence
Program to bring together complementary expertise
across capus and beyond to advance this important area.
Biostatistics Working Group -- This groups sponsors seminars and other
activites in the Department on a regular basis.
- Summer Institute for
Training in Biostatistics -- I am Director of this
wonderful training opportunity for undergraduates,which is a joint
program with Duke Clinical Research
Institute, supported by a grant from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute
Biostatistical Training Program for CVD Research -- I am Director
of this predoctoral training program, which is also joint with Duke Clinical Research Institute,
supported by a T32 training grant from NHLBI.
SAMSI Summer 2007 Program on Challenges in
Dynamic Treatment Regimes and Multistage
Decision-Making -- Susan Murphy and
Butch Tsiatis, and I
were Program Co-leaders for this SAMSI summer program, held in June
2007, which was meant to catalyze research on methodology for studying
adaptive strategies for treating patients over time and was a
precursor to the Personalized Medicine Research Cluster. Here we are
at the poster session, where Susan and I demonstrated the extent of
variation in footwear among statisticians seen during the program...
