Lynne Becker is a biostatistician with an emphasis in epidemiology and over 10 years’ experience in project management. She has a can-do philosophy merged with a “what if” mind. She naturally asks these questions. Whether she is designing research trials, examining datasets, editing papers, or managing complex international projects, she uses her natural curiosity to ask the what-if questions for both short- and long-term consequences for a device, drug, biologic, database design, or any manufactured product and how it impacts not only the intended subject, but the persons manufacturing it, the environment it is being dispensed and disposed in, and the combination effect with other drugs.
She has 20+ years of experience in drug metabolism, diabetes, obesity, device, oncology, ophthalmology, dermatology, animal, gastrointestinal disorder, and behavioral research. She has managed large data warehouses with emphasis on data cleaning, visualization, and analysis for the private sector, academics, and federal government. She is able to use her epidemiological and research methodology experiences in all phases (I-IV) of protocol development to design experimental trials, forecasting, modeling, employing statistical inference and other procedures for successful clinical studies.
These abilities are crucial technical components to run a clinical trial, but there is something more that she possesses. Passion. She is a born advocate for persons seeking medical treatment. She fully believes in integrating a thoroughly informed patient with their care, and she has personally gone to great lengths to ensure that people are fully informed of their choices and options. She is very proud of this characteristic and considers it to be her contribution to the emergence of true personalized care.
