My research develops new clinical trial and experimental study designs to allow 'learning from data' more efficiently. My research also develops new analysis methods to understand latent structure in data. This allows better understanding of disease processes, better targeting of existing treatments, and development of more effective new treatments.
David Dean Billheimer, PhD, works with the Arizona Statistics Consulting Laboratory (StatLab) to partner with scientists, physicians, and businesses to advance discovery and understanding. We provide statistical expertise, personnel and computing resources to facilitate study design and conduct, data acquisition protocols, data analysis, and the preparation of grants and manuscripts. Dr. Billheimer also works to adapt and develop new statistical methods to address emerging problems in science and medicine. Also, he tries to raise the level of statistical practice through seminars, workshops, and short courses. Rather than simply working within the university, Dr. Billheimer facilitates discovery translation and economic development by consulting with public and private organizations external to the University of Arizona.
