Who We Are:

Statepi is a group of professionals (Faculty and Staff) with statistical, epidemiological and computing expertise at the Department of Epidemiology, Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health whose primary mission is to provide leadership in complex study design, research coordination, data management and analytical methods for cohort studies including clinical trials.

Current Projects include:          Highlights of MACS/WIHS Protocol and Cohorts

Liver Cancer, HBV and Aflatoxin

Collaborations with John Groopman (Biomarkers) and Thomas Kensler (Oltipraz), from Environmental Health Sciences Department, as the epidemiology/biostatistics core of several projects on liver cancer. These studies, which started in 1993, seek to enhance the development, validation and application of molecular biomarkers to the prevention of environmental carcinogenesis in high-risk populations. This study, started in 1993, is composed of 3 projects on molecular biomarkers for environmental carcinogens.



Postmarketing Study of Tramadol
The biostatistics/epidemiology center of the Post-marketing Surveillance Program to assess potential abuse of the analgesic Tramadol, since its introduction in 1995.

Postmarketing Study of Opioid-Based Pain Medications
Epidemiology/Biostatistics Center of the Analysis of Data from RADARS (Research of Abuse Diversion and Addiction Related Surveillance) whose primary aim is to describe the patterns of abuse of a class of opioid-based pain medicines.
