Chang Yu, PhD

Member of the Faculty, Department of Population Health

biostatistics, statistical methods, clinical trials, drug efficacy and safety evaluation

I am a faculty member in the Division of Biostatistics, Department of Population Health.

My methodological research focuses on distributions for p-values, models for correlated binary data, mixture models, disease clustering, measurement error correction models, propensity score-based causal inference, survival analysis, and statistical methods for genetics. Before an academic career, I worked over five years designing and implementing phase I, II, and III clinical trials for drug development at Merck Research Laboratories, conducting efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetic analyses to support new drug application (NDA) filings to FDA. I have a special interest in innovative clinical trial design and my collaborative research ranges from clinical pharmacology, hypertension, pulmonary arterial hypertension, asthma, and pain research. Before joining NYU Grossman School of Medicine, I was a faculty member at Vanderbilt University.
