Yuan  Liu

Research Assistant Professor

Faculty, Biostatistics and Bioinformatics

With overall 10 years’ devoted career in medical/cancer/public health research, I have determined to bridge the statistical innovation to clinical research, to promote high standard in research with quality and high efficiency in collaboration, and to challenge students to gain real-life skills and become independent. I have established a wide spectum in cancer research, such as cancer outcome research based on national cancer database (NCDB), Causal inference based on observational studies, cancer risk stratification and validation, dynamic prognostic biomarker development for early cancer diangosis, and phase I and phase II clinical trial design. I have also initated an efficient collaborative frame work and analystic work flow for NDB related collaboration and created a sequential high-performance SAS macros for streamlined data analysis.
