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.
