Current Research:

Dr. Tooze is an Associate Professor in the Department of Biostatistical Sciences, Division of Public Health Sciences, at Wake Forest University. Dr. Tooze is a biostatistician, with expertise in the analysis of repeated measures data. Prior to coming to Wake Forest, she was a Cancer Prevention Fellow in the Division of Cancer Prevention at the National Cancer Institute. In that position, she received training in the epidemiology, control, biology, and prevention of cancer from a multidisciplinary perspective. She is currently a senior biostatistician in the Biostatistics Core of the Comprehensive Cancer Center at Wake Forest, and has collaborated on a variety of projects related to cancer prevention and treatment. Additionally, she has been the primary biostatistician on health-related research studies from a wide variety of disciplines, including quality of home health care, interstitial lung disease, fetal growth, ophthalmology, cognitive function, and rural health.
