 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
Debbie M. Cheng is Professor of Biostatistics and has been on the faculty at the School of Public Health since 2002. Her research interests include longitudinal data analyses and the design and analysis of clinical trials. She collaborates with investigators at the Boston University School of Medicine on several projects in the areas of substance abuse and HIV research. She is Principal Investigator of the Biostatistics and Data Management Core for the URBAN ARCH Consortium, a consortium of studies designed to examine the consequences of alcohol on HIV disease progression. Dr. Cheng also serves as lead statistician on several other studies including: a randomized clinical trial of a behavioral and structural intervention designed to motivate HIV-infected narcology patients to engage in HIV medical care (LINC Study) and a clinical trial testing the effectiveness of a collaborative care intervention for HIV care physicians to improve the management of chronic opioid therapy and reduce the misuse of prescription opioids among HIV-infected persons (TEACH study).  She has been an instructor for Introduction to Statistical Computing (BS723) and the Design and Conduct of Clinical Trials (BS722).
