Faculty Bio

Dr. Peng is a biostatistician and Professor in the Department of Public Health Sciences at Queen's University. Dr. Peng's methodology research has focused on: marginal and random effects models for survival data with a cured fraction; semi-parametric estimation methods and model selection for survival models, and statistical models for observational studies.  Much of this research has involved Ph.D students, and collaborations with researchers at CCE, NCIC Clinical Trials Group, University of South Carolina, University of Michigan, and NCI, and is applicable in both clinical trials and observational studies.

Current Interests

  • Statistical models for survival data with a cure fraction
