Interests:
Dr. Glueck is an Associate Professor of Biostatistics and Radiology at the Colorado School of Public Health. She has a career long focus on choosing power and sample size for experiments.  Dr. Glueck is co-PI on a grant from NIH-NLM to produce a book on power and sample size, co-PI on a grant from NIH-NIGMS to teach a course on power and sample size, and  PI on a grant from NIH-NIGMS to create methods, software and tutorials on power and sample size.  On all three grants, the research focuses on ethical sample size choice. Studies with a sample size that is larger than required may needlessly endanger study participants.  Studies with a sample size that is too small may fail to reach scientific goals, thus putting research participants in danger for no benefit.  This means that careful selection of sample size is an ethical imperative.​  Dr. Glueck is a member of the Center for Bioethics and Humanities Academic Leadership Council.​
