Dr. Ten Have joined the Biostatistics faculty in 1997, after five years at the Center for Biostatistics and Epidemiology at the Penn State University College of Medicine in Hershey. His statistical research interests are in categorical data analysis, random effects models, informative dropout, treatment non-adherence, and designs and statistical analyses to accommodate patient preferences and adaptive treatment regimes. The latter two topics are the focus of a NIMH-funded R01 of which Dr. Ten Have is the Principal Investigator. This research melds with Dr. Ten Have’s collaborative research as Director of the Biostatistics-Data Core and Co-Investigator of the NIMH-sponsored Advanced Center for Intervention Services Research (ACISR) for Depression in the Aged. In this capacity, Dr. Ten Have has collaborated on trials involving the prevention of suicide in elderly primary care patient; the treatment of substance abuse, anxiety, and depression in elderly veterans; and disparities of screening and treatment for mental health disorders in participants of color. He also is participating on a number of post-study analyses of disease-related functional disability and depression; the interaction of age and race on the association between estrogen or its precursors and depression; and the impact of hospitalization for delirium on elderly patients. Finally, Dr. Ten Have is strongly committed to affirmative action in the recruitment of students, faculty members, investigators, study participants, and research topics.
