  • Lab Overview

    Our research focuses on the innovative use of quantitative methods and information technology in cancer research. Our statistical methodology research includes development and application of novel methods for the analysis of correlated failure time and high throughput laboratory data. We are also interested in the creation of new randomized Phase II clinical trial designs that permit early stopping in both patient number and time of initial evaluation. These designs provide for early termination for futility or efficacy, and should be particularly appropriate for studies in patient populations with a high likelihood for rapid disease progression. Our collaborations with numerous investigators conducting clinical, translational, cancer control, epidemiology, and basic science research rigorously extend the quantitative interpretation of results from these disciplines. Our informatics research facilitates cancer investigations by promoting the use of computer-based methods that improve research efficiency and data quality. Special areas of interest include large-scale data integration, and the development and application of web-based technologies to enable remote data collection/presentation, health education and new interventions.
