Dr. Gareen focuses on cancer screening trials. She is interested in the downstream consequences of screening, including medical care utilization, iatrogenic consequences, changes in quality of life, and the impact of screening and screening results on smoking cessation.
Dr. Gareen also focuses on potential biases arising in cancer screening trials.


BIOGRAPHY


Dr. Gareen has a Ph.D. in Epidemiology from U.C.L.A. School of Public Health. She is interested in using epidemiologic methods to evaluate new medical technologies. She currently is working on evaluating lung cancer screening in the National Lung Cancer Screening Trial (NLST). In this trial she is responsible the abstraction of medical records to evaluate the downstream consequences of screening, changes in quality of life associated with screening and screening result, smoking, and assignment of cause of death.
Dr. Gareen co-teaches clinical trials in the Department of Community Health. In the past, she taught Health and Human reproduction. Her dissertation work focused on reproductive epidemiology.


INTERESTS


Dr. Gareen has been involved with the American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN) since its inception. As part of ACRIN, she has worked on the National Lung Cancer Screening Trial, the National Colonography Screening Trial, and the National Oncologic PET Registry.

FUNDED RESEARCH


U01 CA79778 (Gatsonis) 03/02/1999-12/31/2007 NCI Biostatistics Data Management Center for ACRIN The American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN) is a national cooperative group, organized and funded by the National Cancer Institute in 1999 to conduct multi-center, interdisciplinary clinical evaluations of diagnostic imaging in the early detection and diagnosis, staging, and treatment of cancer. ACRIN's ultimate goal is to develop and disseminate scientific knowledge that will help reduce cancer-related mortality and morbidity and improve the quality of life of cancer patients. The Biostatistics and Data Management Center of ACRIN is directed by Constantine Gatsonis and is operated jointly by the Center for Statistical Sciences, Brown University and the American College of Radiology. The main responsibility for data collection and management is with the Philadelphia office of the ACR. The overall direction of the BDMC and the main responsibility for study design, monitoring, and data analysis is with Brown. In addition to his role as Network Statistician of ACRIN, Dr. Gatsonis is the protocol statistician in current ACRIN studies of screening for breast and lung cancer and in a study of diagnostic imaging for cervical cancer.
