Yale CMIPS Faculty Member Dr. Fan Li Receives PCORI Grant to Develop New Methods for Planning Cluster Randomized Trials
We as humans differ from one another in our backgrounds, genetics, and health conditions. For instance, most of us are aware that no two people are the same based on our genetic makeup and lived experiences. Yet clinical trials are often not designed to powerfully analyze how various individual differences like age, health history, and socioeconomic status impact the effect of specific interventions. Fan Li, PhD, Assistant Professor of Biostatistics and faculty member at the Center for Methods in Implementation and Prevention Science (CMIPS) at the Yale School of Public Health, has recently received an award from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) to develop new methods for planning cluster randomized trials that will incorporate such factors into relevant research and interventions.

Yale’s Center for Methods in Implementation and Prevention Science (CMIPS) Director Donna Spiegelman, ScD, and her team have recently received a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) initiative award to continue their Rigorous, Rapid, & Relevant Evidence aDaptation & Implementation to Ending the HIV Epidemic (R3EDI) Implementation Science (IS) Hub for another two years. In addition to the R3EDI renewal, they have also been awarded support for a new EHE project, led by CMIPS associate faculty member Debbie Humphries, PhD, and Dr. Spiegelman, entitled “St. Louis Enhancing Engagement and Retention in HIV/AIDS Care” (STEER), which focuses on identifying the barriers and facilitators of engagement along the HIV care continuum. These projects exemplify CMIPS’ engagement in the national effort to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic through innovative methods, promoting ethical practices, and building the capacity of a new generation of IS researchers.
