  • Anant M. Kshirsagar Collegiate Research Professor of Biostatistics
  • Research Professor, Global Public Health
  • Director, Global StatCore
  • Director of Biostatistics, Pediatric Cardiac Critical Care Consortium (PC4) Analytic Center

Mousumi Banerjee is Anant M. Kshirsagar Collegiate Research Professor, Department of Biostatistics; Research Professor, Global Public Health, University of Michigan School of Public Health (UM-SPH); Faculty Affiliate, Michigan Institute for Data Science (MIDAS), University of Michigan (UM). She is also a member of the UM Rogel Cancer Center, the Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation, and the Center for Global Health Equity. Dr. Banerjee serves as Director of Biostatistics, Pediatric Cardiac Critical Care Consortium (PC4) Analytic Center, a federally funded multi-institution collaborative committed to improving the quality of care for patients with critical pediatric and congenital cardiovascular disease in North America. She is also Director of Global StatCore, an initiative intended to enhance biostatistical support of global public health research, education, and training at UM-SPH, and in collaboration with international partners across the globe. 

Dr. Banerjee received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Statistics from the Indian Statistical Institute in Kolkata, India and her PhD in Statistics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her methodological research focuses on predictive modeling, machine learning, causal inference, correlated data, survival analyses, and competing risks with primary applications to health services and outcomes research. She studies health disparities and fundamental issues related to optimal quality and equitable care delivery in the population. Dr. Banerjee works closely with collaborators in the fields of cancer, pediatric heart disease, neurology, surgery, and social determinants of health. She is a Fellow of the American Statistical Association, and an elected member of the International Statistical Institute..

Research Interests:
I have broad interests and expertise in developing statistical methodology and applying it in biomedical research, particularly cancer and pediatric heart disease. My methodological research focuses on predictive modeling, machine learning, causal inference, correlated data, survival analysis, and competing risks, with applications to health services and outcomes research.

Research Projects:
I study fundamental issues related to cancer care delivery and outcomes in the population, using national registries such as the SEER and National Cancer Database (NCDB), claims data such as Medicare and Optum, and the linked SEER-Medicare database. Since 2016, I have been engaged in developing statistical methods for quality assessment to drive quality improvement initiatives within the Pediatric Cardiac Critical Care Consortium (PC4), a multi-institutional quality collaborative for children with critical cardiovascular disease.
