PCORI is delighted to welcome Tracy Wang, MD, MHS, MSc as Chief, Comparative Clinical Effectiveness Research (CER). Wang will draw upon her clinical expertise as a cardiologist and her extensive research experience at the Duke Clinical Research Institute to provide strategic leadership and management of PCORI’s CER programs.
“I am thrilled to be welcoming Tracy to PCORI,” said Harv Feldman, MD, MSCE, MSEd, Deputy Executive Director for Patient-Centered Research Programs. “Her expertise in comparative effectiveness research, implementation science, and pragmatic randomized clinical trials is a natural fit with PCORI. She has led several large- and small-scale research studies at the Duke Clinical Research Institute that have focused on comparative effectiveness and safety, health disparities, care quality assessment, and quality improvement.”
Prior to joining PCORI, Wang was a professor of medicine at Duke University and director of health services and outcomes research at the Duke Clinical Research Institute. She has published more than 350 peer-reviewed articles and lectured widely on the use of big data to identify treatment gaps and develop strategies for intervention.
Throughout her career, Wang has worked diligently to address disparities in health access and outcomes. She has helped spearhead several national initiatives to foster diversity in research participation as well as in the research and healthcare workforce.
“I am delighted to have joined the PCORI team,” Wang said. “As a physician, I have treated so many patients who were not well-represented in clinical trials and who often voiced outcome needs that differ from what we put into trial designs, yet these trial data are what guide our practice. I look forward to leveraging my background as a clinician, comparative effectiveness researcher, and diversity champion in raising the impact of our patient-centered outcome research, driving efforts to achieve equity in health-related research, and innovating research study design to more expeditiously reduce current evidence gaps.”
Tracy obtained her doctor of medicine from Harvard University, her master of health science in clinical research from Duke University, and her master of science in molecular biochemistry and biophysics from Yale University. She completed training in internal medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and subspecialty cardiology training at Duke University.
