Overview

Rema Raman is a Professor of Neurology at Keck School of Medicine of USC and the Director of the Biostatistics Section and the Recruitment, Engagement, and Retention (RER) Section at the USC Alzheimer’s Therapeutic Research Institute (ATRI). She is the co-lead of the Biostatistics Unit, the RER Unit and the Inclusion, Diversity and Education in AD clinical Trials (IDEA-CT) Unit for the NIA-funded Alzheimer’s Clinical Trials Consortium (ACTC).
Dr. Raman has focused her academic career in the design, conduct and analysis of clinical trials in neurology. She has extensive experience as a collaborative biostatistician and clinical trialist, serving in the leadership team of several highly integrated and interdisciplinary research programs conducting clinical research in Alzheimer¹s disease, stroke, post-traumatic stress disorder, and traumatic brain injury. Her primary statistical research interests are in correlated and missing data issues, design and analysis of efficient clinical trials and cohort studies, centralized and adaptive statistical monitoring approaches, effective safety monitoring and recruitment and retention science.
Dr. Raman is committed to the effective teaching of biostatistics and clinical trial methodology to medical students, graduate students, clinical fellows and other clinical researchers. She has taught clinical trials to graduate students and medical residents/fellows and Biostatistics to basic science and public health graduate students as well as medical students. She has trained physicians on biostatistics and clinical research methodology and provided the statistical mentorship to many research projects. She is co-director of the Institute of Methods and Protocols for Advancement of Clinical Trials in ADRD (IMPACT-AD), a course that aims to educate and promote diversity among research professionals and future principal investigators in the field of Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders research.
