Our Team

CIDA believes in providing exceptional biostatistics support. From start to finish we stand behind the research we conduct and support. Our signature is on everything we do, therefore we are invested in each project, grant and partnership. We work hand in hand with the investigator to ensure that the right designs and analyses are used so we can help answer the the age old question, What’s in your data?

Dr. Kechris' focuses on the development and application of statistical methods for analyzing -omics data sets from high throughput technologies. She has several focus areas: (1) analyzing transcription factor binding and miRNA data to study the regulation of transcription and post-transcriptional processing, (2) examining the genetic and epigenetic factors controlling gene expression, (3) exploring the metabolome and (4) integrating multiple omics data. Dr. Kechris collaborates with investigators studying chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in the COPDGene genetic epidemiology study, substance use disorders using animal models, and early life determinants of diabetes and obesity in children.
