Felicity T. Enders, Ph.D., is a professor of biostatistics at Mayo Clinic. As a highly successful collaborative biostatistician, she has more than 150 publications with an H index of over 40. Dr. Enders has partnered with researchers in clinical areas across the translational science spectrum; most recently this has included women's health and psychology.
Dr. Enders' personal research focuses on educating researchers. For about 15 years, this took the form of statistics education. Leveraging her award-winning expertise, Dr. Enders developed a national statistics education research team within the Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Research Design special interest group of the Association for Clinical and Translational Science. Her research interests have evolved to include hidden curriculum for research, a topic that impacts all trainees and junior faculty.
