Research at NCIRE

NCIRE-The Veterans Health Research Institute is the leading private nonprofit institute devoted to Veterans health research in the United States. Our mission is to advance Veterans health through research.

We support the work of some of the nation's foremost physicians and scientists at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center, the premier biomedical research facility in the VA system. All have faculty appointments at the University of California, San Francisco, which has its own proud traditions of research and patient care. We also partner with the U.S. Department of Defense to support health research on behalf of our men and women in the Armed Forces.

Those who have served in uniform have given their best for their country. In return, we believe that they deserve nothing less than the best health care research we can provide.

Bringing New Biostatistical Methods to Medical Research

Dr. Boscardin's research contributions can be divided into two areas: applications of biostatistics to medical research and development of novel biostatistical methods.  He has collaborated on basic science, observational studies, and clinical trials with researchers in numerous applied areas including HIV/AIDS, brain injury, health disparities, heart transplants, aging and frailty, and scleroderma. His collaborators include colleagues in a wide variety of disciplines, including immunology, virology, gastroenterology, epidemiology, neuroimaging, neurosurgery, neuroscience, cardiology, health services, geriatrics, and rheumatism. His methodological work has focused on Bayesian statistical modeling of repeated and longitudinal data, mixed data types, and missingness.
