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.
