David Elashoff, Ph.D.
My primary area of statistical research is in methodology for the design and analysis of biomarker discovery and validation studies. Additionally, I serve as a statistical collaborator for a wide variety of research projects spanning the range from basic science animal studies, translational research, observational studies, health services research and clinical trials. The primary content areas for my collaborations are in the area of cancer research, with collaborations in lung, oral, prostate, skin, breast, colon, and pancreas. I have collaborated with researchers across the Health Sciences Schools at UCLA (Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing and Public Health).
I have a number of leadership positions in groups providing widely accessible statistical collaboration including serving as a leader of the biostatistics program for the UCLA CTSI and the director of the Department of Medicine statistics core. The Department of Medicine Statistics core has 25 full-time collaborative faculty and staff level biostatisticians with the aim of providing high-quality statistical collaboration to researchers at UCLA.
