Clinical Biostatistics Team


Ted Gooley, Ph.D.

Director & Member, Clinical Biostatistics

Ted Gooley received a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from Washington State University in Pullman (Go Cougs!). He obtained his Ph.D. from the Program in Applied Mathematics at the University of Arizona in Tucson. After a one-year post-doctoral position at the University of Rochester (New York), he joined the Clinical Research Division at Fred Hutch and has been here since 1992, where he has been involved in numerous studies (both clinical trials and observational studies) in the area of hematopoietic cell transplant. Outside the workplace, Ted enjoys time with his wife and their daughter. He also has a passion for sports and is known to be willing to discuss such matters with anyone who is interested, particularly when it comes to March Madness.

Vicky Wu, Ph.D.

Assistant Member, Clinical Biostatistics

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. 

Mary Redman, Ph.D.

Associate Member, Clinical Biostatistics

Mary Redman earned her Ph.D. in Biostatistics at the University of Washington in 2004 and joined Fred Hutch in 2005. She has extensive experience in designing, monitoring, and analyzing cancer clinical trials. She is the lead statistician for the Lung Committee and the Lung-MAP trial in SWOG. She has worked at least 50-60 Phase I, II, and III clinical trials in lung, other solid tumor cancers, and sarcoma and lymphoma. Her area of focus is on clinical trial design incorporating potentially predictive biomarkers.

Wendy Leisenring, Sc.D.

Member, Clinical Biostatistics

Wendy Leisenring received her doctorate in Biostatistics at Harvard University in 1992 and joined Fred Hutch in 1993. She collaborates on a wide varitey of studies, including randomized clinical trials and prospective and retorspective 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.

Barry Storer, Ph.D.

Member, Clinical Biostatistics

Barry Storer received a Ph.D. in Biomathematics from the University of Washington, and was on the faculty at the University of Wisconsin-Madison before joining Fred Hutch in 1995. He now works part-time, primarily telecommuting from his home in Wenatchee, WA.

Staff Members

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.

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).        

Lynn Onstad

Statistical Research Associate, Clinical Biostatistics

Lynn Onstad has a B.A. in Mathematics from St. Olaf College and a Sc.M. in Biostatistics from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.  She worked for 2 years at the GWU Biostatistics Center in Maryland before moving to Seattle in 1991, at which point she started working at Fred Hutch and has been here ever since. After working for many years in the Public Health Sciences division, she recently joined the Clinical Biostatistics group. Outside of work Lynn enjoys spending time with family and friends and taking advantage of all the great outdoor activities the northwest has to offer.

Jenna Voutsinas

Statistical Research Associate, Clinical Biostatistics

Hu Xie

Statistical Research Associate, Clinical Biostatistics

After growing up in China, Hu Kie moved to New York and earned her Master’s degree at the University at Albany. She joined the Biostatistician team at Fred Hutch in 2008 and has been researching infectious diseases in HCT patients since then. She fills in the rest of her time cooking, traveling and watching movies.

Philip Stevenson

Statistical Research Associate, Clinical Biostatistics

Phil Stevenson attended the University of Arizona where he earned a B.S. in Math and Communications in 1999 with a minor in Music Composition, a Master’s in Education in 2001, and a Master’s of Science in Statistics in 2013. Clearly from his eclectic (or indecisive) educational background, he has myriad interests which range from sports, movies, crossword puzzles, and writing run-on sentences. Phil mainly works with transplantation data at the Hutch, where he employs such methods as Cox regression, logistic regression, and competing risks analysis.        


Keith Lowe

Research Administrator, Clinical Biostatistics

Keith Lowe received his Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from Rowan University as well as Certificates in Project Management and Clinical Trials from the University of Washington. Keith joined Fred Hutch in 2002 and assumed the mantle of the Program Administrator in Clinical Biostatistics in 2016. When not managing grants, contracts, budgets, and effort he is amidst the wilds of the western woods enjoying time with his wife, son, and two beloved pugs. His greatest success was famously picking Lehigh over Duke in 2012 and winning the March Madness pool!
