Dr. Heidi Weiss

The UTMB Comprehensive Cancer Center has the distinct pleasure of announcing the appointment of Heidi L. Weiss, Ph.D. as Director of the Biostatistics Shared Resource Facility and as Professor in the Department of Preventive Medicine and Community Health. Dr. Weiss comes to UTMB from the Baylor College of Medicine, where she was a Professor in the Breast Center and Dan L. Duncan Cancer Center. Prior to working at Baylor, Dr. Weiss held faculty positions at the Comprehensive Cancer Center of the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Dr. Weiss obtained a Ph.D. in Biostatistics from the School of Public Health at the University of South Carolina. She has 15 years experience as a statistician in cancer research from her affiliations with NCI-designated Cancer Centers.

The mission of the Biostatistics Shared Resource Facility within the UTMB Comprehensive Cancer Center (CCC) is to establish collegial interactions with members of the CCC in the provision of scientific and statistical support to all aspects of cancer research. The ultimate goal is to promote truly collaborative relationships as evidenced by inclusion in peer-reviewed research grant support and joint publications.

As the Biostatistics Shared Resource Facility’s first Director, Dr. Weiss will ensure that the resource has significant expertise in all aspects of biostatistical support specific to CCC research activities. This will include interactions early on in the planning and design of in vitro, in vivo preclinical and murine studies, and clinical studies; conceptualization of design and sample size considerations to optimize resources that will address study goals; database development and monitoring of safety, toxicity, and efficacy parameters of clinical trials; generation of interim statistical reports; and conduct and interpretation of final statistical analysis. We are delighted that Dr. Weiss will help lead our efforts as we continue to move our cancer program forward.
