      Collapse Overview
      Dr. Karen Messer is Chief of the Division of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics at UCSD and has directed the Biostatistics Shared Resource at Moores UCSD Cancer Center since 2006. As an applied biostatistician, she has collaborated widely in academic medicine and in translational research, and as a mathematical statistician, she has developed new statistical tools and methods in genomic and biomarker studies. She has leadership experience within large collaborative research projects and statistical cores. She has designed many oncology trials, including validation studies for devices and prognostic biomarkers, and early phase therapeutic trials. Her current statistical research interests are in prognostic modeling and biomarker studies in cancer and with her colleague Loki Natarajan she is PI of an NCI-funded R01 to develop integrated genomic and behavioral risk models for breast cancer recurrence.

      Principal Research Interests

      • High dimensional data analysis and genomic studies

      • Design and analysis of biomarker studies

      • Clinical trial design in oncology

      • Epidemiology of tobacco use

      • Prognostic modeling
