Research Summary

Dr. Nouraie’ s outstanding skills as a biostatistician helped facilitate the development of several key studies in cancer, sickle cell and chronic pulmonary disease including projects on biomarkers of disease severity, natural history of disease, and application of big administrative data in disease outcome studies through data management and analysis. His research on the design and analysis of clinical and translational studies in GI benign and malignant disease, sickle cell, and cardiopulmonary disorders has resulted in over 160 peer-reviewed publications.
