Research Component Growing With Addition of Talented Biostatistician

According to Dr. Kavita Batra, a new biostatistician at the UNLV School of Medicine, biostatisticians not only can assist in designing studies, they review the data, perform quality assurance to statistical methods and outputs, and help interpret results of analyses to relay meaningful information to inform public health policies. Academic medicine, she notes, is evidence based.

Dr. Kavita Batra combines her talent working with numbers with a PhD in Public Health and experience as a dental surgeon to fill a critical role assisting school of medicine researchers.

When Batra explains what she can bring to collaborations at the medical school, her scientific voice is evident: “I bring my analytic, problem-solving, and communication skills to the school of medicine. I perform advanced quantitative analysis (modeling, bootstrap, meta-analysis etc.) and have a firm grasp over the survey-based research. With my dental background (Batra is a former dental surgeon), I have a complete understanding of medical terminologies, which I get to apply and integrate with my statistical expertise to various areas across the school of medicine…”
