Jasmin Divers, PhD
I am a biostatistician with expertise in statistical genetics, health services research, and management of large multicenter studies. I have a broad research portfolio that includes projects in type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes mellitus, cognitive function, cerebrovascular and cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage kidney disease (ESKD), and kidney transplant outcomes. My research ultimately led me to consider the larger question of ethnic differences in disease and disease outcomes. I am particularly interested in the role that genetic ancestry plays in these disparities and how they interact with the social determinants of health to affect outcomes in minority populations.
Before coming to NYU Long Island School of Medicine, I was a tenured professor of biostatistics in the Department of Biostatistics and Data Science at Wake Forest School of Medicine.
