Shahidul Islam, DrPH, MPH, PStat®

I am an assistant professor of biostatistics and director of the Biostatistics Core in the Division of Health Services Research at NYU Long Island School of Medicine with expertise in clinical trial and electronic health record data. I apply biostatistical and epidemiological methods to solve clinical and epidemiological research questions and also serve on the NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island Institutional Review Board.

I collaborate with researchers on a range of studies in various therapeutic areas, including endocrinology, nephrology, cardiology, and health services research for people with diabetes, obesity, asthma, and kidney and heart disease. I also assist with protocol development, study design, power and sample size computation, clinical data management, data analysis, and manuscript and grant preparation.

I apply my extensive experience in clinical data management and data quality (including electronic data capturing) to ensuring that our researchers collect robust and clean data, a major component of any successful research study.

I teach biostatistics and data analysis classes at NYU Long Island School of Medicine. I also provide training and lead workshops on the application of basic biostatistics and epidemiology methods for all levels of researchers at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island, and have developed and taught introductory biostatistics courses at Adelphi University and Stony Brook University.

My research interests include joint modeling of recurrent and terminal events, measurement error correction, clinical trial design, propensity score analysis, and using electronic health records to analyze big data in healthcare.
