Dr. Christopher Bartlett’s research focuses on developing innovative statistical methods to better understand childhood development from pre-term birth through childhood. His research includes boutique methods development to address challenges of real-world clinical data, which led to much of his recent career focus on informatics. His group has put forth several biomarkers that have been incorporated into ongoing clinical trials. Other innovations include funded projects in machine learning for clinical decision support, and most recently, quantum computing which holds great promise but is still very much developing as a technology. He has received funding from the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. He is the Co-Director of Biomedical Informatics for Center for Clinical and Translational Science, Methods Core Directors for The Center for Accelerating Suicide Prevention in Real-world Settings (ASPIRES) and an investigator on several big science projects including the Environmental Influences on Child Health Outcomes (ECHO), PEDSnet, along with the MPRINT.
He received a PhD from Rutgers University and an MHA from the University of Cincinnati. He holds/held Editorial/Board duties for four journals and had a first author paper named in the ten best scientific papers on early childhood development by the Center of Excellence for Early Childhood Development (Université de Montréal).
