Dr. Ella Temprosa is an Associate Research Professor at the Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics. Her research projects have focused on Phase 3 NIH-sponsored multi-center clinical trials for more than 25 years at the Biostatistics Center, a research center at the George Washington University. She is the Principal Investigator of the Biostatistics Research and Coordinating Center for the NIDDK-sponsored landmark study, Diabetes Prevention Program and its Outcome Study since 2013 and as biostatistician/ investigator since 1998. Her research interests include various aspects of clinical trial design, conduct and analyses as well as data visualization, longitudinal data analysis and missingness. Throughout her research career, she continues to enjoy the confluence of the technical, scientific, and public health aspects of collaborative studies in the areas of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and obesity with major focus on novel markers such as adipocytes, cytokines, lipid subfractions, inflammation, endothelial dysfunction and more recently metabolomics. More recently, she is leading the data management efforts in the DC HIV cohort where she hopes to make the use of EHR data streams more robust for monitoring and analyses in order to explore the intersection of HIV and diabetes.
