Headshot of Gary Grunwald

Gary Grunwald PhD, MA

Clinical Professor
  • Department of Biostatistics & Informatics

I retired June 30, 2022 after 25 years as a professor at CU Anschutz. During that time I balanced my effort between teaching, mentoring, statistical methods development, collaborative research, and administration, and was especially active with the department’s education programs. My statistical methods research was mostly in the area of correlated non-normal data, particularly counts, proportions, and continuous data with zeros. My early work was mainly in time series with later work in longitudinal and clustered data for the same types of outcomes. My collaborative work was in the areas of nutrition and physiology, and later cardiovascular health outcomes research, where I still do a small amount of collaborative work with the Denver VA COIN program.
