Shirley Wang PhD, ScM is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Associate Epidemiologist in the Division of Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

Her work has ranged from applied epidemiologic studies to address current clinical questions, to simulation studies evaluating methodological issues, to creation of semi-automated modular queries for rapid, sequential, safety monitoring of newly marketed medications within the FDA’s Mini-Sentinel framework. Her particular research interest is in development of non-traditional analytic methods. The foci of Dr. Wang’s methodological work have been in the areas of self-controlled designs, semi-automated active surveillance methods, as well as methods for prediction of individual level heterogeneity of treatment effects.

Dr. Wang received her doctorate in epidemiology and masters in biostatistics from Brown University and was awarded both the Reuel A. Stallones student prize paper from the Society for Epidemiologic Research and the Stanley A. Edlavitch best abstract award from the International Conference on Pharmacoepidemiology & Therapeutic Risk Management in 2011.
