Wang (Jijia) Lab

Statistical methodology development
Dr. Wang's research interests primarily involve the development of statistical methodologies for the design and analysis of clinical trials, as well as the evaluation of correlated data and repeated measurements. Her specific focus has been on power analysis, experimental design, and sample size determination for longitudinal studies using Frequentist and Bayesian approaches. Dr. Wang has also developed the methodologies that are very flexible and can accommodate various pragmatic issues such as longitudinal and clustered outcomes, random variability in cluster size, unbalanced randomization, complicated correlation structures, missing data, and small sample sizes. Those methodologies have achieved great performances across a broad spectrum of design configurations and made innovative contributions to clinical studies.

Collaborative studies 
Another area of Dr. Wang's research interest is the collaboration with clinicians, investigators, and multidisciplinary research teams on a wide range of biomedical and clinical studies. Through these collaborations, Dr. Wang has provided statistical expertise and guidance to support the design, implementation, and analysis of research studies. Her contributions have led to many peer-reviewed publications and have helped to ensure that research findings are sound and reliable. Dr. Wang is dedicated to advancing the use of rigorous statistical methods in clinical research to improve the quality of evidence and ultimately enhance patient health.
