The primary research interests of Eric C. Polley, Ph.D., are in the areas of advanced diagnostic assay development, new drug development and precision medicine clinical trial design. Recently, Dr. Polley's research has focused on using statistical and computational biology approaches to evaluate how molecular diagnostic assays — for example DNA sequencing or microbiome sequencing — are used for treatment decisions.
By utilizing advanced analytic approaches, Dr. Polley's research improves the identification of promising new therapeutics and, combined with novel diagnostic procedures, improves individualized care for patients. Improvements in clinical risk prediction models allow for more precise estimates of risks and benefits, and improve clinical decision-making.
