Dr. Mazumdar developed methodologies for detecting publication bias in meta-analysis; for adjusting selection bias in clinical trials; for allowing interim looks at data in clinical trials comparing diagnostic tests; for developing and validating quality of life questionnaire; and for estimating misclassification rate of responders when oncologic response criteria were changed.  Her collaborative research resulted in personalized treatment regimen for various cancer types and orthopedic surgeries. Her work also changed guidelines for staging cancer and practice guidelines for use of anesthetics. She developed innovative interdisciplinary educational and research programs, in collaboration with various clinical departments that increased productivity through grantsmanship and augmented clinical revenue through improved care delivery. Working within inter-disciplinary teams, she has trained more than 50 biostatisticians, epidemiologists, and clinical researchers, many of whom are leading quantitative science units today.
