Research Summary

Dr. Peduzzi’s primary research interests involve the design, conduct, and analysis of clinical trials and issues in multivariable analysis. He is currently Director of the Yale Center for Analytical Sciences. He was formerly the Director of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Cooperative Studies Program Coordinating Center in West Haven, Connecticut, which conducts multi-center, multi-national clinical trials and epidemiologic studies. Dr. Peduzzi’s current research activities involve the efficient design of clinical trials.
