Assistant Research Professor of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics
Yunyun Jiang, Ph.D., Assistant Research Professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, joined Biostatistics Center in May 2018 as a biostatistician for the Antibacterial Resistance Leadership Group (ARLG) research network, a network that develops, designs and implements the transformational trials to change clinical practice and reduce the impact of antibacterial resistance and antimicrobial resistance. Her current research focuses on the development of novel statistical methodologies that will advance the ARLG mission, specifically innovative approaches to design, monitoring, and analyses of antibacterial studies (clinical trials, diagnostic studies, and master protocols). Specifically, Dr. Jiang is working on the ARLG RADICAL study evaluating the utility of a host response-based diagnostic test categorizing acute respiratory tract illness into bacterial, viral, or neither etiology. She received her Ph.D. in Biostatistics from Medical University of South Carolina, with her dissertation research focus on the design and implementation of Bayesian response adaptive randomization in phase III confirmatory clinical trials. She received Biopharm-Deming Student Scholar Award for Outstanding Achievement in Education and Professional Development, as well as Women in Statistics and Data Science Travel Award. Her research interests include clinical trial design, conduct and analysis.
