Cuiling Wang, Ph.D.

Associate Professor, Department of Epidemiology & Population Health

Associate Professor, The Saul R. Korey Department of Neurology

Professional Interests

Dr. Wang is director of the Statistical Core for the Einstein Aging Study and Principal Investigator of NIH R03 AG046504. Her primary research interests include statistical methods for designing and analyzing longitudinal studies with missing data, mediation analysis and survival analysis.  Missing data is a major source of bias in long-term longitudinal studies, especially aging studies. Dr. Wang has been working on statistical approaches to eliminate or reduce the bias in the estimation of cognitive decline, mobility decline and incidence of dementia in aging studies. She collaborates on studies in aging, mobility, Parkinson’s disease, cardiovascular disease, obstetrics & gynecology, autism, and multiple sclerosis.
