Meet a PennMedicine Researcher
J. Richard Landis, PhD,
J. Richard Landis, PhD, Professor and Director of Biostatistics in the Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology and in the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics, is the recipient of the 2014 Arthur Asbury Outstanding Faculty Mentor Award. This award recognizes a faculty member who has fostered the professional development of others by providing inspiring and effective counsel and opportunities for achievement.
Dr. Landis’s colleagues cited his unwavering commitment and ability to serve as an outstanding mentor to students and faculty colleagues, junior and senior, alike. He has also been effective in identifying opportunities for faculty to take on leadership roles in major research projects, advancing their own careers and professional development. Citing his extraordinary generosity and skill as a mentor, it is no coincidence that Dr. Landis recently won two other prestigious leadership awards. He was the first man to win the 2010 Penn FOCUS Award for the Advancement of Women in Medicine, and he was also granted the 2011 Marvin Zelen Leadership Award in Statistical Science from Harvard University.
