Gina-Maria Pomann
Assistant Professor of Biostatistics & Bioinformatics

My primary research focuses on methods related to the development of biostatistics, bioinformatics, and data science units within academic health centers. An essential element of my work is to improve and diversify the workforce of collaborative biostatisticians and data scientists. I develop training programs, operational processes, and organizational infrastructure that foster efficient and effective collaborations between clinical and translational scientists and quantitative scientists.

As an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics I collaborate with clinical and translational scientists to address scientific problems and develop best practices for efficient and effective quantitative and qualitative collaboration resources. As the Director of the Duke Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Research Design (BERD) Methods Core, I lead a team of collaborative biostatisticians (40+ faculty, staff and students) who work with the interdisciplinary network of clinical and translational investigators conducting research at Duke. These biostatisticians are embedded in long term collaborative teams and provide expertise in study design, implementation of statistical methodology, and interpretation of results.

In addition to developing collaboration teams, the Core also provides analytic resource navigation in order to connect all quantitative and qualitative research groups on campus. We develop and support medical investigator training programs, biostatistician and data science training programs, student training and internship programs, seminar series, and participate on numerous national initiatives to enhance data driven research in academic healthcare.
