Cancer Focus

I have over 30 years of collaborative biostatistical experience working with University of Arizona Cancer Center (UACC) investigators in the design, conduct and statistical analysis of clinical, prevention and laboratory studies. I am the Biostatistics Shared Resource (BSR) Director, and facilitate the involvement of BSR faculty and staff in collaborative support for UACC investigators. I have served as the Biostatistics Core Director for multiple program project grants and SPORE applications, and as a co-investigator on multiple R01 and R21 grants. I also have collaborated with clinical investigators in the design, conduct, and statistical analysis of clinical trials, including three large (> 1000 patient) trials of adenomatous polyp prevention agents.
