  • Research Interests:In addition to working on new editions of his textbook, Dr. Lemeshow continues to focus on methodological research in the areas of logistic regression and time-to-event data analyses. As a biostatisictian, he works collaboratively with many researchers on a wide range of public health concerns. His pending proposals for future studies include a prospective examination of fatigue, depression, and inflammation in cancer survivors.
  • Current Research:As a biostatistician, Dr. Lemeshow has been highly productive in both methodological and collaborative research. A leader in the field of logistic regression, he has co-authored three important biostatistical textbooks: Applied Logistic Regression, Applied Survival Analysis: Regression Modeling of Time To Event Data, and Sampling of Populations: Methods and Applications. His recent methodological research has focused on goodness of fit tests for logistic regression models generated from complex sample surveys. Dr. Lemeshow is active in collaborative research on numerous topics relevant to populations health including cervical cancer among underserved Appalachian populations, efficacy of breast cancer treatments among Vietnamese women, tobacco use among the Amish, and the effect of stress on the immune system, wound healing and cancer development.
