Ying Huang, PhD

  • Associate Member, Vaccine and Infectious Disease Division, Biostatistics, Bioinformatics and Epidemiology
  • Associate Member, Public Health Sciences Division, Biostatistics and Biomathematics

The Huang Group develops statistical methods for design and analysis of biomarker studies for disease screening, surrogate endpoint identification, and treatment selection in cancer and infectious diseases.  Biomarkers are characteristics that can help to predict the risk of disease and the effect of treatment. The Huang Lab studies how to efficiently identifying biomarkers and deriving marker-based rules that will be useful in disease diagnosis and treatment.

We are interested in the following areas of research:

  • Design and analysis for biomarker evaluation in cancer and infectious diseases
  • Surrogate endpoints analysis
  • Causal analysis
  • Nutritional biomarker studies
  • Genetic epidemiology
