Stephanie Lobaugh, MS

Research Biostatistician


University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Current Research Interest 

Stephanie is interested in the application of biostatistical methods to many areas of oncology including diagnostic imaging, assessing adherence to colorectal cancer screening methods, cancer genomics, gynecologic oncology, and cancer survivorship. Additionally, she is interested in characterizing patterns of care and the adoption of care guidelines through population-based studies using Medicare claims data. Currently, she is excited to contribute to research aimed at elucidating the relationship between clonal hematopoiesis and cancer. She is also a member of the Bridge to Biostats committee and helps to organize the “biostats track” within MSK’s Summer Exposure Program for high school students.
