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).
- Precision 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.
- Summer Institute 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.
- 2018-2019 SAMSI Program on Statistical, Mathematical, and Computational Methods for Precision Medicine (PMED) -- I am one of the Local Scientific Coordinators for this year-long program that will bring together statistical, mathematical, and computational scientists, along with domain scientists, to pursue innovative, data-driven methodology for advancing precision medicine.
