The Colorado School of Public Health students, faculty, and staff are recognized each year at the annual awards ceremony. “We could not do this work without the commitment and dedication of our outstanding faculty, staff, students, and community partners,” said Dean Jon Samet.
A $1.9 million grant from the NIDCR will help researchers at the CU Department of Surgery and Colorado School of Public Health develop better treatment methods for children diagnosed with craniosynostosis, condition in which a baby’s skull plates fuse together too early.
Working in collaboration with a pediatrics-critical care professor, ColoradoSPH alumnus Peter DeWitt, PhD'17 in biostatistics, created an automated algorithm with a corresponding interactive web tool to assess children’s blood pressure.
“The decrease in the susceptibility of the population as a whole, increase in personal protective behaviors, and the lack of case reporting have caused superspreader events to both be less likely to occur and less likely to be reported,” said Bailey Fosdick, associate professor of biostatistics and informatics.
“Over the next 12 weeks, we’re pretty confident things will stay low,” said Bailey Fosdick, associate professor of biostatistics and informatics. That doesn’t mean people should treat the virus as a thing of the past, she clarified, emphasizing the importance of vaccinations and boosters.
New research, led by Fuyong Xing, assistant professor of biostatistics & informatics, found that a new imaging information system may ultimately provide a faster, more accurate prognosis for certain cancers.
Wastewater surveillance data continues to show that the virus’ prevalence in Colorado is dropping, said Bailey Fosdick, associate professor of biostatistics and informatics. But while the situation is improving, the virus is still relatively widespread.
ColoradoSPH Assistant Professor in the Department of Biostatistics & Informatics, Antonio Porras, and his team are using large datasets and artificial intelligence to identify anomalies and predict development in children with the skull-growth disorder called craniosynostosis.
A new modeling report released today by Colorado public health scientists estimates just how much Coloradans have changed their behaviors since the start of the pandemic – and how those behaviors may now be shifting with the state’s new Safer at Home orders.
Beginning with the 2019-2020 application cycle, ColoradoSPH is eliminating the GRE as an admissions requirement for the MPH and DrPH graduate programs in an effort to recruit the most diverse student body possible.
Dr. Katerina Kechris, Professor of Biostatistics and Informatics, has been elected a 2019 Fellow of the American Statistical Association (ASA) . The American Statistical Association is the world’s largest community of statisticians, that supports excellence in the development, application, and dissemination of statistical science.
Dr. Sarah Schmiege, Associate Professor of Biostatistics and Informatics, received the Chancellor’s Teaching Recognition Award and is being recognized by the Provost for her outstanding contributions to teaching.
Congratulations to Dr. Nichole Carlson, Professor in the Department of Biostatistics and Informatics, for being accepted as a Fellow in the 2019-2020, 25th anniversary Class of the Hedwig van Ameringen Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine (ELAM) Program for Women.
