Vicky Wu received her Ph.D. in Biostatistics at the University of Pennsylvania in 2013. Prior to joining Fred Hutch, Vicky worked as a consultant for two and a half years. She joined the Clinical Research Division at Fred Hutch in June, 2016.  Vicky has broad experience and expertise in statistical genetics, biomarker analysis and clinical trials.  She has worked as the primary statistician/co-investigator in multiple aspects of drug development and clinical trials, including phase II and phase III studies of head and neck cancer, prostate cancer,  glioblastoma multiforme, and the observational study of late stage lung cancer and breast cancer, etc.  Her major research focus is using complex genetic/biomarker information to optimize trial design and developing efficient statistical algorithms to identify patient subgroups with better/worse responses to a particular treatment. Vicky is also a science fiction fan and writer.  Her favorite sport team is Man United, though her husband and son are Gunners.

Wendy Leisenring received her doctorate in Biostatistics at Harvard University in 1992 and joined Fred Hutch in 1993. She collaborates on a wide variety of studies, including randomized clinical trials and prospective and retrospective cohort studies, taking a key role in the design and analysis of such studies. She has a particular interest in infectious disease and other outcomes that are sequelae to the treatment for cancer. Since 2004, she has been the lead statistician for the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study (CCSS) and more recently became the PI of the National Wilms Tumor Late Effects Study.

Tim Randolph, Ph.D.

Tim Randolph, Ph.D.

Associate Professor, Clinical Biostatistics, Fred Hutch

Tim Randolph earned his Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of Oregon in 1990 studying functional analysis and operator theory. He worked as an Associate Professor of Mathematics at the University of Missouri-Rolla (now Missouri University of Science and Technology) until 2002 when he came to the University of Washington as PI on an NIH-funded (K25) career transition into biomedical data analysis.  In 2006 he joined the Public Health Sciences Division at the Fred Hutch as a Senior Staff Scientist, then Principal Staff Scientist (2013), before joining the Clinical Research Division as an Associate Member in 2016. His current research has grown out of a variety of collaborations at the Fred Hutch and UW focusing on statistical methods and machine learning for analysis of high-dimensional and structured data such as microbiome, metabolomics, genomics, proteomics, and neuroimaging.

Staff Members

Kelsey Baker

Kelsey Baker

Statistical Research Associate, Clinical Biostatistics

Kelsey Baker attended Saint Martin’s University and the University of Pittsburgh earning a B.A. in Mathematics and an M.S. in Biostatistics. She was born and raised in Spokane, but has a new found love for western Washington and Seattle living. When she is not providing statistical support for Phase II clinical trials at the Hutch, you can find her exploring the diverse opportunities found in the Pacific Northwest such as scaling Mt. Rainier and enjoying a cone at Molly Moons.

Dan Hippe

Dan Hippe

Statistical Research Associate, Clinical Biostatistics

Dan Hippe has a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and M.S. in Statistics from the University of Washington. Before coming to the Fred Hutch, he worked in the Department of Radiology at the University of Washington on imaging-related research projects. Dan enjoys learning about new research topics and working on a variety of projects, including those involving prognostic modeling, time-to-event analysis, and longitudinal or other types of repeated-measures data. Outside of work, Dan enjoys helping out on his family’s chestnut orchard in Lacey, WA, especially with tasks that involve moving heavy objects from point A to point B, a chainsaw, and/or diesel.

Isaac Jenkins

Isaac Jenkins

Statistical Research Associate, Clinical Biostatistics

After spending time with the US Army as an Infantryman, Isaac Jenkins attained his B.A. in Mathematics and M.S. in Statistics at the University of Arizona. He later came to Fred Hutch to further expand his detail oriented approach to statistics. His research interests include R-programming, reproducible research and data visualization. But his most valued achievement comes in the form of beating Sonic the Hedgehog without dying (he even collected all the Chaos Emeralds).

Statistical Research Associate, Clinical Biostatistics

Kevin Ng earned a B.A. in Mathematics from Oberlin College and an M.S. in Biostatistics from OHSU-PSU School of Public Health. After working for a period in injury law as a case manager reviewing clients’ musculoskeletal chart notes, Kevin worked with the Biostatistics & Design Program at Oregon Health & Science University, providing biostatistical support to a wide variety of health sciences investigators. When he is not reinforcing his conceptual understanding across the range of data methodologies and paradigms, he is probably foraging with family at a U-Pick farm, watching videos about the history of video games, or jogging outside while listening to podcasts.
