The AJNR would like to welcome Bryan Comstock, MS, who joined us as our first Statistical Senior Editor on October 1. Manuscripts submitted to AJNR now undergo separate statistical review, during which they are assessed for the statistical validity of their findings and for study design. We hope this added level of scrutiny will further improve the quality of papers we publish and also help authors to revise and refine their work during review.
Bryan is Senior Biostatistician at the Center for Biomedical Statistics at the University of Washington in Seattle, where he develops and supports grant applications for extramural funding in the areas of health services research, radiology, neonatology, nephrology, and surgery. He has served as the primary biostatistician for numerous randomized clinical trials and observational cohort studies and has developed electronic data capture systems for multisite randomized studies. He is a member of the Society of Clinical Trials and the co-author of more than 50 peer-reviewed articles indexed on MEDLINE.
