Experience (in reverse chronological order)
* Full Professor, part-time, Department of Biomedical and Health Informatics, University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC), February 2009 to present. In this position, I started the Research and Statistical Consult Service. With a second consultant, we helped with the planning of research studies, analyzed the data coming from these studies, and co-authored research presentations and publications. We helped researchers obtain internal and external grant funding. I left work with the Research and Statistical Consult Service in January 2016 because of the demands of a major research grant, but the service is still being run by another faculty member. In addition to this work, I helped with the introduction of a new Master’s degree in Bioinformatics and a graduate certificate in clinical research. I helped develop three new courses (Introduction to R, Introduction to SAS, and Introduction to SPSS) including the preparation of materials for an online version of these classes. I have provided guest lectures for other classes (Responsible Conduct of Research, Clinical Trials).
* Independent Statistical Consultant, P.Mean Consulting, July 2008 to present. In this position, I have provided consulting on research design and data analysis to clients. I have specialized in helping doctoral students who are struggling with the requirements of their dissertations. I have provided webinar classes for The Analysis Factor, Novartis, and the Medical Library Association. When I first started my consulting business, I could not find much information about the practical aspects of statistical consulting (e.g., contracts, insurance, and billing), so I developed resources on my website and blog and gave presentations and short courses on setting up a consulting practice.
* Research Biostatistician, Office of Medical Research, The Children’s Mercy Hospital and Clinics (CMH), May 1996 to October 2008, with a joint appointment as Associate Professor (promoted to Full Professor, September 2007) in the School of Medicine at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. In this position, I provided statistical consulting to the doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals at CMH. Before I arrived, there was no statistical support for researchers, so I developed a consulting system from scratch. This included a series of training classes that helped researchers to become self-sufficient for some of their less complex data analyses. I wrote some informational handouts for clients and placed these on my web (now at www.pmean.com). It started slowly, but averaging one or two handouts per week, I now have a website that has over 1300 pages (over 1600 if you count my blog, blog.pmean.com, started in 2013). This website is regularly cited in both paper and electronic resources for research methodology and pops up high on the list of search engines when technical terms in research are entered. I helped many researchers get funding (both internal and external) through research grants. I worked closely with the Institutional Review Board to ensure that protocols submitted to them addressed concerns about scientific merit and protection of confidentiality. I provided training in the ethical conduct of research. I worked closely with the effort to implement Evidence Based Health Care at CMH and participated in numerous journal clubs. In 2006, I published a book on the statistical issues associated with critical appraisal of research evidence. I was the sole statistician at CMH from 1996 to 2007 and oversaw a massive expansion in the quantity and quality of research conducted there.
* Chief, Statistics Activity, Division of Biomedical and Behavioral Science, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, December 1987 to May 1996. I supervised a staff of two research statisticians and two computer specialists. I oversaw the administration of a Local Area Network for more than 100 users, and the maintenance of administrative and research data on a client-server database. I reviewed and approved all project protocols in the Division prior to the start of any experimental work. I worked directly with project officers in designing experiments, analyzing data, and writing results for publication. I was very active in the NIOSH effort to adopt Total Quality Management (TQM), serving as team leader, facilitator, or member of a variety of quality teams. I provided many informal training seminars in TQM for NIOSH employees.
* Research Statistician, Division of Biomedical and Behavioral Science, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, July 1987 to November 1987. The person who hired me for this position left shortly after I arrived and I was quickly promoted to her position (see above).
* Assistant Professor, Department of Applied Statistics and Operations Research, Bowling Green State University, September 1981 to May 1987. Duties included teaching and research. I taught Business Statistics, Experimental Design, Linear Models, Multivariate Statistics, Nonparametric Statistics, Regression, and Statistical Packages. I published articles and made presentations in the areas of numerical accuracy, robust statistics, and computer applications. During the Summer of 1986, I served as the Assistant Director of the Statistical Consulting Center.
* Adjunct Instructor, Department of Statistics, University of Iowa, June to August 1981. I taught a three credit hour class, Statistical Computing.
* Research Assistant, Statistical Consulting Center, University of Iowa, June 1979 to August 1981. I was the student director of the Statistical Consulting Center. Under the direction of a faculty adviser, I met with faculty and graduate students and provided guidance and support for the design of research studies and the analysis of the data from those studies.
Current grant funding
* Frontiers: University of Kansas Clinical and Translational Science Institute (NIH UL1 TR002366, Principal Investigator: Richard Barohn). The Heartland Institute for Clinical and Translational Research has been a catalyst for bringing together translational science investigators and stakeholders across the KC region, and beyond. The vision of Frontiers is to contribute to and lead national efforts to transform the way we do clinical and translational research (CTR), and to ensure research is more rapidly and more efficiently translated to the point of care so that it may contribute to improved health. I am funded at 10% effort starting in September 2017.
Completed research grants
* Greater Plains Collaborative (PCORI HSRP20162063, Principal Investigator: Lemuel Waitman). The Greater Plains Collaborative (GPC) is a new network of 10 leading medical centers in 7 states committed to a shared vision of improving healthcare delivery through ongoing learning, adoption of evidence-based practices, and active research dissemination. Role: Consultant. I billed at an hourly rate from February 2016 to August 2017 when my efforts were switched to “Frontiers: University of Kansas Clinical and Translational Science Institute” described above.
* Increasing HIV Screening in African American Churches. (NIH R01 MH099981, Principal Investigator: Jannette Berkley-Patton). The primary aim of the proposed study is to conduct a clustered, randomized community trial to fully test our culturally/religiously-tailored church-based HIV screening intervention against a standard information intervention on HIV screening rates at 6 and 12 months with adult AA church members and community members who use church outreach services. Role: Co-investigator. I was funded at 5% effort from July 2013 through January 2016, but had to discontinue work on this grant because of other work commitments.
* Role of cytochrome P450 in alcohol-mediated effects on antiretrovirals and HIV-1. (NIH R01 K2304028, Principal Investigator: Santosh Kumar). Our central hypothesis is that in monocytes/macrophages alcohol-mediated oxidative stress causes enhanced HIV-1 replication via pathways mediated through CYP2E1, and alcohol-mediated decrease in the efficacy of PIs and increase in PIs-mediated toxicity concurrent with increase in the rates of HIV-1 replication is directly mediated through CYP3A4. Role: Co-investigator. I was funded at 8% effort in the first year with increasing support in future years, but support was lost in July 2014 when the PI moved to a different institution.
* HIV Testing in African American Churches. (NIH K01 MH082640, Principal Investigator: Janette Berkley-Patton). This Mentored Research Career Award provides support for Dr. Jannette Berkley-Patton to obtain the requisite training and expertise to develop and test a church-based intervention to increase HIV testing among African Americans. Role: Co-investigator. I was funded at 5% effort from April 2012 through July 2013 when my efforts were switched to “Increasing HIV Screening in African Americal Churches” described above.
* Ensuring Medication Safety in Pediatric Emergencies. (FDA U01 FD004249, Principal Investigator, Susan Rahman). In no other patient population is there more calculation and manipulation of drug doses than in children. The need to individualize pediatric doses introduces the potential for errors along the entire process of drug delivery from prescribing and transcribing the dose to diluting, compounding, dispensing and administering the final formulation. Consequently, dosing errors represent the most common type of medication error in children. Error rates in children are 3x more common than the corresponding rates in adults and in hospital settings the rate of medication errors on pediatric wards is second only to those in intensive care units. Despite the abundance of weight estimation strategies, there remains a critical need for methods that are accurate across a wide range of pediatric ages, weights, lengths, nationalities and body compositions. Consequently, we undertook the development and validation of a weight estimation method that incorporates surrogates for both stature and body habitus, requires no subjective assessment and performs robustly independently of age and length over a broad range of weights. Role: Consultant I billed at an hourly rate from September 2011 through September 2012.
* Health Educators in the Emergency Department to Improve Sexual Health Care for Adolescents. (NIH KL2 RR033177 & UL1 RR033179, Principal Investigator: Melissa Miller). Our objective in this application is to develop an ED-based intervention for adolescents aged 14-19 years that will increase access to care, provide more timely detection of STIs and pregnancy, and ultimately reduce adolescents’ risk for STIs and unintended pregnancies. Role: Consultant. I billed at an hourly rate from August 2011 through July 2012.
* CAM, Medical Service Utilization, and Quality of Care among Patients with Musculoskeletal Conditions (NIH R01 AT000891, Principal Investigator: Bill Lafferty). To inform health policy decision making at the individual and societal level by assessing the effect of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) provider use on three primary outcomes: costs, service utilization, and quality of care for the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. I was funded at 25% effort from November 2010 to August 2011.

The major goals of this project are to develop a method for unit-based acuity adjustment and to develop a method to calculate hospital level indicators. I was funded at 25% effort from February through April 2008.
* Sex, SLE, and Signal Transduction (NIH R01 AR50878. Principal Investigator: Jill Jacobson). Total direct costs of $250,000 in 2002. The major goal of this project is to demonstrate that the increase in immune responsiveness to gonadotropin-releasing hormone in female mice plays a pivotal role in increased incidence of autoimmune disease. I was funded at 5% effort from December 2001 through November 2006.
* Pediatric Pharmacology Research Unit (NIH U01 HD31313. Principal Investigator: Greg Kearns). Total direct costs of $361,932 in 2002. The major goal of this project is to conduct basic and translational research focusing on regulatory events in pharmacogenetics, the ontogeny of important drug metabolizing enzymes, and pharmacodynamics that will advance our understanding of age-related differences in drug disposition and action. I was funded at 3% effort from May 1996 to December 2003.
