Yuan  Liu

Research Associate Professor

Faculty, Biostatistics and Bioinformatics

With an overall 10 years’ devoted career in medical/cancer/public health research with over hundred of peer-reviewed publications, I have determined to bridge the statistical innovation to clinical research, to promote high standards in research with quality and efficiency in collaboration, and to challenge students to gain real-life skills and to be independent. I have accumulated a wide spectrum experience 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 diagnosis, and phase I and phase II clinical trial design. I also initiated an efficient collaborative framework and analytic workflow for NCDB related collaboration and created a sequential high-performance SAS macro for streamlined data analysis.
