Waldron Lab

Dr. Waldron is active in public health data science, combining statistics and computation to address data-intensive public health problems, particularly in the field of translational cancer research. He is a technical advisor to the Bioconductor project for computational biology and the author of multiple software and data packages for genomic analysis and analysis of the human microbiome.

Prior to his work at CUNY ISPH, Dr. Waldron completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the University Health Network in Toronto, and at the Harvard School of Public Health and Dana Farber Cancer Institute.

Dr. Waldron’s implementation science expertise focuses on assessing the effectiveness of novel HIV patient care, and the clinical translation of molecular subtypes of cancer.
