Do you love problem solving? Do you love data? Do you seek to use your skills to make a difference in the world? Join us Wednesday, November 3rd, from 11:00am-12:30pm to learn about our biostatistics master's and doctoral programs! This is a great opportunity to meet and ask questions to department leadership, faculty, and current students. Discover how the Department of Biostatistics develops future leaders in public health!
Brown University-based Advance Clinical and Translational Research Program (Advance-CTR) received a second five-year, $19.9 million grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences to continue its work supporting clinical and translational research in Rhode Island. Advance-CTR is a partnership involving Brown, University of Rhode Island, Lifespan, Care New England, the VA Providence Healthcare System and the Rhode Island Quality Institute that began in 2016 and brings researchers and health care stakeholders together to collaborate and fund research projects to bring them from theory to actionable health care provided to those in need.
The Department of Biostatistics, of Brown’s School of Public Health, held a unique Kick-Off Celebration on Friday, September 3rd. During our in-person kick-off of the 2021-22 Academic Year, we recognized:
7 incoming PhD students – our largest incoming doctoral class! -- 19 returning PhD students and candidates -- 21 incoming Master’s students -- 14 returning 2nd-year Master’s students -- And 10 Undergraduate Statistical Concentrators
Brown University's School of Public Health Department of Biostatistics is very pleased to welcome one of our newest faculty members, Dr. Arman Oganisian, as Assistant Professor of Biostatistics. He received his PhD in Biostatistics from the University of Pennsylvania in 2021, where he was a member of the Center for Causal Inference and an Associate Fellow at the Leonard Davis Institute for Health Economics.
We are most please to welcome another of our newest faculty members, Youjin Lee, Manning Assistant Professor of Biostatistics at Brown University's School of Public Health's Department of Biostatistics. Professor Lee's primary areas of research interests are causal inference, social networks, and observational studies. She is interested in developing new statistical and causal inference methods under settings where standard assumptions do not hold. Professor Lee is currently working on estimating the spillover effects of a policy intervention.
Biostatistics researchers in the Brown School of Public Health together with collaborators across the University and around the country, have developed a new, non-invasive approach to assessing and forecasting a range of diseases, using digital imaging instead of a scalpel.
Ashley Buchanan, DrPH in Biostatistics at URI College of Pharmacy and Adjunct Assistant Professor of Biostatistics at Brown University’s School of Public Health’s Department of Biostatistics, presented at the NIDA HIV Avenir Award Symposium at their annual event in late January 2021. As a 2018 receipient of the NIH’s National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) HIV Avenir Award, Dr. Buchanan presented on the University of Rhode Island NIDA Avenir Project: “Causal inference methods for HIV prevention studies among networks of people who use drugs”
