Core 5 - Statistics
The Statistics Core is led by Dr. Lihong Qi of the University's Public Health Sciences Department. The core coordinates all Center needs for experimental design, data integration, and statistical analysis. The Core advises on design of studies, linkage of analytic databases across cores and projects, mathematical and statistical analyses, and mechanisms to allow researchers and decision makers to visualize probable consequences of alternative mechanistic models. Dr. Lihong Qi's expertise is in biostatistics and she has extensive training in conducting methodological research on high-dimensional genetic association single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) studies. Additional expertise is available to Center researchers through the Division of Biostatistics, whose 10 faculty members include experts in genomics, bioinformatics, missing data in longitudinal studies, neuroimaging, and time-to-event data. Dr. Hertz-Picciotto, Deputy Director and Project 1 leader, is an experienced epidemiologic methodologist who acts as the CCEH Liaison to the Statistics Core.
