During this year’s National Public Health Week, Professor Roee Gutman was recognized by Brown University’s School of Public Health with the 2020 Dean’s Award in Excellence in Research Collaboration. Professor Gutman joined Brown’s Department of Biostatistics in 2011 and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2018.
A growing number of researchers are finding meaningful, impactful results through “N of 1” studies in which scientific discoveries are being made for “one person at a time.” Among the various examples, a 2018 study involving Schmid along with Dr. Richard Kravitz of the University of California, Davis, and their other collaborators was referenced in a recent Knowable Magazine article.
Congratulations to Professor Lorin Crawford who has been named by The Root among the 100 most influential and prominent members of the African American community! Professor Crawford is being recognized as “an up-and-coming researcher…. developing statistical models to help scientists better understand genetic disorders.”
A new national study found that brain imaging to detect Alzheimer’s-related plaques affected clinical diagnosis and management of patients with mild cognitive impairment and dementia. The findings are a step toward understanding how imaging results ultimately affect patient outcomes.
Questions about health screenings — Whether to screen? How often? At what age? At what cost? — seem to readily breed conflicting opinions and public confusion. What’s needed is rigorously produced evidence. That’s where Constantine Gatsonis, chair of the Department of Biostatistics at Brown University, comes in.
