Gary S Collins

Gary has research interests primarily focussed on statistical (and reporting) aspects in developing and validating multivariable prediction models. He has published over 100 papers on clinical trials, observational studies, systematic reviews, quality of life, propensity scores and prediction models.

Gary is a statistical editor ("hanging committee") for the BMJ.

Gary also led the development of the TRIPOD Statement for reporting clinical prediction models -

Xiangqin Cui

Xiangqin Cui is an associate professor in the Biostatistics Department, Section on Statistical Genetics, at University of Alabama at Birmingham. She received her Ph.D in Genetics at Iowa State University in 2001 and a three-year postdoctoral training in statistical genetics at the Jackson Laboratory afterwards. Her research is on experimental design and data analyses of high-throughput experiments including microarray, next-generation sequencing, statistical genetics/genomics, epigenomics.

Barbara E. Engelhardt

Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Princeton University. My group develops statistical models and methods for high-dimensional genomic data, modeling human genetic variation and its impact on gene expression and splicing, with the goal of identifying mechanisms of human disorders and diseases.

Philip M Jones

Associate Professor in the Departments of Anesthesia & Perioperative Medicine, Epidemiology & Biostatistics, and Medicine at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, Canada.

MSc in Clinical Trials from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine in 2011.

Practices anesthesiology and cardiac critical care.

Research interests include Comparative Effectiveness Research, Trial Reporting, Systematic Review & Meta-Analysis.

Michael W Kattan

Dr. Kattan's research is primarily focused on the development, validation, and use of prediction models. Most of these models are available online, and designed for physician use, at He is also interested in quality of life assessment to support medical decision making (such as utility assessment), decision analysis, cost-effectiveness analysis, and comparative effectiveness.
