He previously served as Director of Computational Biology and Biomedical Informatics at U Penn, Global Head of Computational Genomics at Roche, Director of Bioinformatics and Pharmacogenomics at Wyeth and Director of Genomics at Vysis. Dr. Liebman's research focuses on computational models of disease progression that stress risk detection, disease processes and clinical pathway modeling, and disease stratification from the clinical perspective. He utilizes systems-based approaches and design thinking to represent and analyze risk/benefit analysis in pharmaceutical development and healthcare.

Upcoming Events
Jan 21
The Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC) Office of the Dean for Research is proud to present the Dean's Seminar Series.

Jan 22
This month's MHRI-GHUCCTS Monthly Statistical Seminar Series features Dr. Paul Kolm, Associate Director in the Department of Biostatistics and Biomedical Informatics at MedStar Health Research Institute. Dr. Kolm will discuss meta-analysis. Meta-analysis combines the results of several studies to overcome small samples of individual studies and estimate a "true" effect size of some treatment, therapy, etc. There has been a substantial increase in the number of meta-analyses published in the past few years, but many appear to not understand the potential problems of the method and draw incorrect conclusions. We will examine the method, potential problems, and what can and cannot be inferred from the results.
This Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI) NIH "Rethinking Clinical Trials" Grand Rounds features Harlan M. Krumholz, MD, SM, Harold H. Hines, Jr. Professor of Medicine and Public Health at Yale University, and Joseph S. Ross, MD, MHS, Professor of Medicine and Public Health at Yale University. Drs. Krumholz and Ross will discuss " Is It Time to Embrace Preprints? A Conversation About the First 18 Months of medRxiv".
