Description of Research Expertise

Design of Clinical Trials

Description of Itmat Expertise

Dr. Ellenberg engages in biostatistical analysis of validity and inferential viability/generalizability in clinical research, including bias arising from patient selection and subjects lost to follow-up, uniformity of methods of assessment across centers in multicenter studies, missing data and completeness of reporting, barriers to access to enrollment pools in observational studies, and intention to treat analysis in clinical trials.
