Dr. Stuart Gansky is Associate Dean for Research, Director of the UCSF Center to Address Disparities in Children's Oral Health (CAN-DO), and a Co-Director of the Research Coordinating Center to Reduce Disparities in Multiple Chronic Diseases. Previously, for more than 4 years, Dr. Gansky was Director of the Data Coordinating Center for NIH-funded Early Childhood Caries Collaborative Centers (UCSF, University of Colorado Denver, and Boston University) and then Co-Director/Director of the Coordinating Center to Help Eliminate/Reduce Oral Health Inequities in Children for 7 years. He was also an Assistant Director of the UCSF CTSI Mentor Training Program before it transitioned to the Mentor Development Program.

Dr. Gansky's research concentrates on oral health research, health disparities and health equity research, applied statistical analyses and related method­ological issues. Balancing these components is essential to successful and practical oral epidemiology research. Methodological examination helps ground health research and build convincing argu­ments, while collaborative health research generates opportunities for innovative statistical practice and provides challenges for developing ways to solve real world problems.
