Research Interests:

Dr. Patricia Langenberg, PhD is Professor and Vice Chair for Academic Programs in the Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine. She serves as Director of the Graduate Programs in the Department, and teaches a PhD course in Longitudinal Data Analysis. Dr. Langenberg has served as Biostatistician or Co-investigator for a number of funded grants, primarily in aspects of women's health. She is Principal Investigator for a BIRCWH career development grant for faculty doing research in women's health. Dr. Langenberg has worked on an NIH-funded grant for a large study of incidence of pressure ulcers in hip fracture patients. She is currently Biostatistician for an NIH-funded study "Risk Factors for Interstitial Cystitis", a chronic condition primarily diagnosed in women. She was recently Co-Investigator for two studies of risk factors for hot flashes in Peri- and Post-Menopausal women. She was Biostatistician and on the Steering Committee for the AHRQ-funded multi-center clinical trial, STOP-DUB, investigating a surgical alternative to hysterectomy for dysfunctional uterine bleeding; additional publications from this study are in preparation. She serves as biostatistician for a funded (NIMH) study of depression and springtime tree allergy. She was Biostatistician for an NCI-funded clinical trial studying the effects of hormone replacement therapy in postmenopausal women with fibroids, and is also Biostatistician for a study of steroid hormones in the baboon endometrium. She was Co-Investigator and Biostatistician for a study of gut permeability in Type I diabetes, and is Biostatistician for an NIH Program Project on Arthritis and Traditional Chinese Medicine, as well as an International Center (ICRC) study of Functional Bowel Disorders and Chinese Medicine. As part of her research interest in clinical trials, Dr. Langenberg was a statistician for the NEI-funded clinical trial of Ischemic Optic Neuropathy Decompression (IONDT). She was a Co-investigator for an NCI-funded grant to promote the 5-a-day program in Maryland WIC centers, and for a prevention trial, Food For Life, which studied the effectiveness of a multiple nutritional intervention program in WIC women. For five years she served as Director of the Biostatistics Core for the UMB GCRC. An area of interest is meta-analysis; she published several papers in this area, both application and methods papers.
