The director of the UF Health Cancer Center’s Division of Quantitative Sciences and the Biostatistics Shared Resource, Dr. Lee’s research interests include clinical trials, group randomized trials based on communities, methods for repeated measurements, Bayesian approach and best statistical practices.

Prior to joining the UF faculty earlier this month, Dr. Lee served as director of the Biostatistics Shared Resource at the University of New Mexico Comprehensive Cancer Center and as a member of the Moffitt Cancer Center. There, she served on the Protocol Monitoring Review Committee as head of Biostatistics Clinical Trials and the Scientific Review Committee as a statistical reviewer. She also founded the BIOS 101 course for cancer researchers at the UNMCCC and Moffitt. Dr. Lee has authored over 132 peer-reviewed articles, particularly focused in skin cancer, breast cancer and population science.

American Statistical Association fellows are nominated by their association member peers. To be selected, nominees must have an established reputation and have made outstanding contributions to statistical science. The Committee on Fellows can elect up to one-third of one percent of the total association membership as fellows each year. Dr. Lee will be recognized at the association’s Joint Statistical Meetings conference this month in Vancouver.
