Bingshu Chen, MSc, PhD

Canadian Cancer Trials Group Senior Biostatistician

Dr. Chen joined the Canadian Cancer Trials Group as senior biostatistician in July 2008. He is a Professor in the Department of Public Health Sciences and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Queen's University. Dr. Chen received his PhD in Biostatistics at the University of Waterloo in 2003. He spent 4 years at the United Sates National Cancer Institute in the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, first as a Postdoctoral Fellow and then as a Research Fellow. Prior to coming to Queens University, he was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Concordia University in Montreal. His research interests are survival analysis, computational statistics, Bayesian statistics, biomarker-treatment interaction, design and analysis of clinical trials and epidemiology.

Areas of expertise:

Biostatistics, Bioinformatics, Clinical Trials, Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, Deep Learning, Statistical computing, Survival Analysis

Research interests: survival analysis, deep learning algorithms and generalized linear models, analysis of clustered survival data, health economic data, statistics computing and missing data problems, design and analysis of clinical trials, and design and analysis of epidemiology studies.
