Research Focus

Applied Area-Use of Statistics in Analysis and Reporting of Cancer Registry Data

Personal Mission Statement

I am very proud of the progress in research that has been made by the University of Kansas Medical Center with NCI Cancer Center Designation being just one example. The Department of Biostatistics is one component of the success story here at KUMC. In addition to working with researchers in the cancer center and the Kansas Cancer Registry the birth and growth in the Department of Biostatistics has been very rewarding with the challenges and rewards that teaching brings.
