Joanne Chou joined department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) in the summer of 2006. Her main collaborations at MSKCC are with oncologists from the gastrointestinal service, surgeons from both Colorectal (CRC) and Hepatopancreatobillary (HPB) services, and investigators in the cancer survivorship program through the St. Jude’s Childhood Cancer Survivorship group (CCSS). Joanne is also a member of the Bridge to Biostats committee and her roles include providing learning opportunities to underrepresented high school students in NYC and mentoring them on the pathway to further study in the field of biostatistics.
Joanne’s primary interests focus on developing and validating models to predict patient outcomes and identify useful biomarkers that can help with cancer screening. In addition, she is also interested in new methodology in clinical trial design, particularly in the field of immunotherapy.
