One of the focuses of my research is designing clinical trials that more efficiently use patient resources than those currently in use. The goals are to treat patients more effectively and to identify promising therapies more rapidly. An example is allowing many drugs to be used in the same trial, with accumulating data dictating the therapy used on the next patient. Another focus is models for genetics of cancer. Another focus is building epidemiological models for cancer mortality with the goal of identifying and evaluating effective interventions.
