About Peter Gilbert, Ph.D.

Dr. Peter Gilbert, Professor of Biostatistics in the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Division of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and at the University of Washington, focuses on the statistical design and analysis of clinical trials of candidate vaccines for HIV, SARS-CoV-2, and other infectious pathogens. He specializes in statistical methods and data analyses of these trials to understand how immune responses to vaccination and genetic features of infectious pathogens impact vaccine efficacy, so-called “immune correlates of protection analyses” and “sieve analyses”.  He is PI of the Statistical Data Management Center for the NIAID HIV Vaccine Trials Network, and plays a similar role for US Government-supported COVID-19 Prevention Network preventive vaccine efficacy trials.
