Ralph B. D’Agostino, Sr., is Chairman of the Mathematics and Statistics Department and Professor of Mathematics/Statistics, Biostatistics and Epidemiology at Boston University (Ph.D., Harvard, 1968). His major fields of research are clinical trials, epidemiology, prognostics models, longitudinal analysis, multivariate analysis, robustness, and outcomes/effectiveness research.

He has extensive experience (since the 1980’s) developing cardiovascular risk prediction models which have been used in Treatment Guidelines sponsored by the NIH and American Heart Association and also web based models for general consumer use.

He is a fellow of the American Statistical Association and the Cardiovascular Epidemiology Council of the American Heart Association.

He has been with the Framingham Heart Study since 1981 and is Co-Principal Investigator of the Core contract and Director of Data Management and Statistical Analysis for the study.

He is a Special Government Employee (SGE) to the United States’ Food and Drug Administration (FDA). He has been affiliated with the FDA’s Center for Drugs Evaluation and Research (CDER) since 1974 as an Expert Consultant to the Biometrics Division, the Over-the-Counter Drugs Division, the Oncology Drugs Division, the Cardiovascular-Renal Drugs Division and the Gastrointestinal Drugs Division. He has also been a consultant to the Device Division. Further, he has served on a number of Advisory Committees and was the Chair of the Nonprescription Drugs Advisory Committee (NDAC). He has twice been the recipient of the FDA’s Commissioner’s Special Citation (1981 and 1995).
