Katherine S. Panageas

Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY, USA

Dr Katherine Panageas is an Attending Biostatistician and Director of Research Support in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. She received her doctorate from Columbia University. Her research interests focus on the clinical trials in oncology, methodological issues of observational and population-based data, cluster correlated data and cluster randomized trials. She has extensive experience in the analysis of real-world population-based data to evaluate treatment and outcomes. As more studies conducted become patient-centered appropriate clinical trial designs must be implemented to adequately and efficiently accomplish the objectives of the study and alternative designs to the gold standard randomized clinical trial are becoming increasing popular. She has published on appropriate methodology in these settings and potential biases that can arise when using these secondary data sources. Dr. Panageas is involved in the analysis of cluster correlated data and random effects models in the context of health services research. She is currently involved in developing a framework for hospital profiling in cancer. Profiling hospitals and/or physicians based on the quality of care they provide to patients is a priority for policy makers, payers, and the public. She has served on numerous NIH study sections and has more than 200 peer-reviewed publications in both clinical research and statistical methodology.
