Prasad Patil, PhD
Assistant Professor
Boston University School of Public Health

PhD, Johns Hopkins University
BA, New York University

Dr. Patil is a former postdoctoral research fellow at the Harvard Chan School of Public Health Department of Biostatistics/Dana-Farber Cancer Institute Department of Biostatistics and Computational Biology with Giovanni Parimigiani. He completed his PhD in Biostatistics from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health with Jeff Leek. His professional interests include personalized medicine, genomics, prediction, data visualization, and study reproducibility/replicability.

Dr. Patil is currently working on:
- Multi-study prediction
- Statistical definitions for reproducibility and replicability.
- Stable and interpretable prediction methods for gene expression data. The contexts are cancer risk classifcation and survival prediction.
- Assessing the additional value a genomic signature can provide beyond standard clinical measurements in a randomized trial setting.
- Interactive health visualizations executable in one line from R.
- Automated analysis templates with the ability to compare results after parameters have been changed.
