Statistics Causal Inference; Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER); causal mediational analyses; statistics modeling of electronic medical records and clinical registry data

Bin Huang has had more than 15 years research as a biostatistician researcher. Her research has been focused on applying and devising better statistics methodologies for: a) searching for better treatment/preventive strategies; and b) evaluating to what extent health disparities exists, and how the different exposures to biological, social and physical environments may interact with each other leading to the gap. Currently, she is working on evaluating casual inference methods and devising improved methods for conducting comparative effectiveness research (CER) using data collected from electronic health record and multi-center patient registry. Her other research interests include causal mediational and causal mechanisms analyses, and analyses of large observational data.

Dr. Huang has authored and co-authored more than 100 peer-reviewed publications in the health and pediatric care research area. She has been funded as principal investigator, co-investigator and biostatistician on a number of NIH/PCORI and other extramural grants. Dr. Huang is an elected member of International Statistical Association (ISI). She serves on multiple federal governments public advisory committees. She over sees a graduate internship program at the Division of Biostatistics and Epidemiology.
