Dinesh Pal Mudaranthakam portrait
Assistant Professor, Biostatistics & Data Science

Professional Background

As an Assistant Professor and Director of Research Information Technology, I oversee and provide expertise in designing and implementing research databases and data warehouses. Cancer Curated Clinical Outcomes Database (C3OD) is an example of a data warehouse. C3OD is an intuitive user interface utilized by our physicians and research staff to perform feasibility analysis and trial recruitment. I have 12+ years of experience with database development and maintenance to execute multi-center clinical trials through various phases – study start-up, participant identification, recruitment, data collection, curation, quality analysis, data dissemination, and manuscript publication. Our team has gone through the rigorous validation process to get our Clinical Research Information System (CRIS) 21 CFR Part 11 compliant (prescribed by FDA).

Research interests: Population health, epidemiology, electronic health records, administrative claims data, observational study design, categorical data analysis, survival analysis, longitudinal data, System integration, Informatics Eco-system

Current research areas include Financial Toxicity among Cancer Patients, Rural/Racial disparities, Informatics System integration, Clinical trial optimization. Our team has built an Informatics Eco-System combined with constructed in-house and 3rd party owned tools. Each system within the ecosystem helps expedite the research process and facilities that an individual research team performs on an extensive scheme of things. The crucial element has been integrated to avoid data discrepancy and the elimination of double data entry.
