Wenyan Ji

Wenyan Ji earned her MA degree in Biostatistics from the SUNY University at Buffalo (UB) (2018). She then worked for Roswell Comprehensive Cancer Center for three years as a biostatistician. She worked with Department of Urology and Surgical Oncology in pre-clinical, clinical and translational studies for a variety of disease settings and outcomes, including but not limited to cardiovascular disease, breast cancer, prostate cancer, gastric cancer, leukemia, Covid-19 related disease, opioid use, healthy lifestyle and tobacco use, where she participated in study design, study analysis and manuscript writing. She is now working for Center for Biostatistics & Health Data Science (CBHDS) as a research associate. She has authored/co-authored over 30 peer-reviewed scientific publications.
