Murray-Krezan, Cristina Research Assistant Professor, Biostatistician


I am a biostatistical collaborator and researcher with a broad range of expertise in statistical methods. I have a particular interest in patient-centered outcomes research, infectious diseases, health disparities, and clinical trials design. My biostatistical research area focuses on developing methods for identifying informative censoring in longitudinal studies without need to collect data from subjects after dropping out. I work with clinical and scientific faculty, fellows, residents, and post-docs on externally funded grants, internal clinical trials, and clinical studies. My collaborations with clinical researchers in the Health Sciences Center are fostered by my Division of Epidemiology, Biostatistics, and Preventive Medicine, as well as through the Clinical and Translational Science Center and the Cancer Center. I have served on the New Mexico Cancer Care Alliance's Protocol Review & Monitoring Committee where I reviewed pharmaceutical and institutional clinical trial protocols. I also am the course director and instructor for "Biostatistics for Clinical and Translational Science" in the Master of Science in Clinical Research program. I am currently funded by PCORI, NIH, CDC, and HHS.

selected publications

research overview

  • My biostatistical research focuses on developing methods to identify informative censoring in longitudinal studies that do not require post drop-out data on subjects.

teaching overview

  • Since 2010, I have been the Course Director for "Biostatistics in Clinical and Translational Science" (BIOM 559) for the Master of Science in Clinical Research degree program. I have also presented several short courses in SAS, Stata, and provided lectures for residents and fellows about clinical research and working with biostatisticians. On a case by case basis, I teach independent study courses in biostatistics for students pursuing Level 3 MSCR credit. I occasionally contribute to grant writing/development workshops provided by the Office of Research to provide insight for study design and feasibility from the biostatistician's perspective.
