Statistical Consultant

Aestus THerapeutics

Analyzed gene expression data to identify genes that showed biological activity in specific neurological disorders.Forwarded preliminary results to genomics scientist for further refining.

  • Conducted research on microarray data to identify genes that were co-regulated in specific neurological conditions.
  • Using JMP and SAS, explored large data sets and identified genes that were of special importance.
  • Used tools such as meta-analysis, cluster analysis and looking at different correlation coefficients to examine this data.

Sep 2012 - Nov 2012

Statistical Consultant

University of Cincinnati School of Pharmacy

I worked with a researcher at the School of Pharmacy to analyze some cancer biomarker data. I had to work closely with him to make sure I answered his specific research questions. I had to conduct multiple comparisons testing against a single control group using a non-parametric version of Dunnett's method to control for an inflated type I error rate. This was used because the population was not normal (It fact the it was highly skewed). I also conducted some non-parametric correlation analysis using the Spearman correlation coefficient because some of the data did not exhibit a linear relationship nor was it from a normal distribution. The project also involved generating multiple reports/outputs from SAS and explaining my results and how to interpret the results to the researcher. I also assisted in the writing and editing of the methods section of the paper

Statistical/SAS Consultant

YourEncore (Contractor at Pfizer)

Conducted targeted QC of 2 completed clinical trials focusing on areas of statistical analysis, SAS algorithms and procedures. Later that year, the drug was approved.

  • Validated clinical data by re-calculating several primary and secondary-endpoint variables using SAS.
  • Validated derived variables between raw data and output data sets.
  • Ensured accuracy of data and algorithms by evaluating programming QC procedures and practices and providing recommendations for improvement.
  • Verified data summaries by reviewing selected tables, listing and figures, including those in the ISE/ISS.
