Dr. Lori Chibnik, PhD, MPH is a biostatistician and Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Boston University School of Public Health as well as Assistant Professor with a joint appointment in the Department of Epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the Department of Medicine at the Harvard Medical School. She received her MPH in International Health and her PhD in biostatistics from Boston University where she worked on predictive modeling methods for disease risk. Over her career, she has developed and assessed predictive models for diseases such as HIV, prenatal screening, and autoimmune diseases and continues to apply her methods to various diseases. Dr. Chibnik’s current research focuses primarily on genetics and genomics of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia with an emphasis on longitudinal cohorts. In addition to her research, she is internationally renowned for her training programs and innovative teaching techniques, having developed multiple courses in biostatistics for varied audiences. While at Boston University she managed the Summer Institute for Training in Biostatistics, an NHLBI funded, 6-week summer program designed to bring undergraduate students into the fields of Biostatistics and Public Health. Most recently she developed and implemented a series of biostatistics and programming courses specific to the needs of scientists in sub-Saharan Africa. Currently, she directs the Global Initiative for Neuropsychiatric Genetics Education in Researcher at the Harvard-Chan School and the Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research in the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT.
