Effective collection, management and analysis of data are crucial to the scientific discovery process. As an evolving data scientist armed with training in biostatistics, computer science and the classical sciences, Mr. Tsang develops web-based database driven applications that assist researchers in accomplishing their data management tasks for their large NIH funded multi-site clinical trials as well as their smaller single-site studies. Under the guidance of Dr. Martin Lesser, the Director of Biostatistics, Mr. Tsang also engages in the analysis of data using the latest statistical methodologies.
Current projects that Mr. Tsang is involved with include the Udall Center Grant for Parkinson’s Disease Research, Dr. Bettie Steinberg’s Trial of Celecoxib Therapy for Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis, Dr. Adrianna Vlachos’s Leucine study with Transfusion-Dependent Diamond Blackfan Anemia (DBA), Dr. Manish Vira’s Prostate Cancer Registry and Dr. Betty Diamond’s study on Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. In addition, Mr. Tsang is actively working with the Office of Research Compliance (ORC) and the Clinical Research Service (CRS) in developing intelligent database systems that will assist in their day-to-day operations.
