Please join VIDD in welcoming new SCHARP Director Dr. Peter Guarino. Peter comes to us from the Veteran Affairs Cooperative Studies Program in New Haven, Connecticut, where he has worked for the past 15 years – the last five years as director. Peter has a PhD in biostatistics from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and a Master’s degree in infectious disease epidemiology. The VA Cooperative Studies Programs is a multi-site clinical trials center currently coordinating over 20 large trials in different stages, including studies in HIV, with sample sizes from a few hundred to a study with 50,000 participants. Peter is also an associate clinical professor of Biostatistics at Yale University School of Public Health. He brings a rare combination of statistical expertise with management experience from his current role in directing a large data coordinating center.
As SCHARP Director, Peter will manage overall operations and provide leadership and oversight to SCHARP’s four operational units: Data Analytics, Data Management, Project Management, and Technology and Software Systems. In partnership with faculty PIs he will provide fiscal oversight of SCHARP’s operations, and set SCHARP’s strategic goals to ensure continuation of SCHARP’s best-in-class status.
Peter has expressed in many ways how excited he is to be joining the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center given its excellent reputation and in light of the major positive impact of our work on the public’s health. He started April 6, 2015.
