Principal Statistical Scientist

Lynette Keyes-Elstein welcomes challenges and thrives on finding solutions for difficult problems. To conquer obstacles, such as finding creative ways to analyze data and coordinating project activities across departments to rein in expenditures, she draws on both statistical expertise and exceptional management skills. Dr. Keyes-Elstein holds graduate degrees in both biostatistics and immunology and has published peer-reviewed articles as a biostatistician and as a bench scientist. Her background of scientific and biostatistical achievement enhances her ability to provide meaningful statistical consultation on design and analysis issues associated with studies of diseases and conditions with underlying immunologic mechanisms. After serving as a co-PI of the Statistical and Clinical Coordinating Center for Autoimmune Disease Clinical Trials (SACCC-ADCT) for 6 years, Dr. Keyes-Elstein took over as Principal Investigator and head of Rho’s department of infectious and autoimmune diseases in 2008. She is also a co-PI for Rho’s Statistics and Data Coordinating Center for the ITN. As a reward for her efforts, Dr. Keyes-Elstein has won Rho’s Presidential Award for Reaching Above and Beyond three times since 2005.
