Wan-Ling Hsu, PhD is a Statistician for the NIH-funded STROKE COG Study and the MI Decision Aid Pilot Studies. She joined the COG-HSR team in May 2023. She was born and raised in Taipei, Taiwan. After graduating from university, she completed her PhD at Penn State University. Her first job was at the University of Michigan (U-M) Institute for Social Research studying how dementia could affect patients’ psychosocial status. She then spent 20 years as an expatriate in Japan and China with her family. During this time, she had the opportunity to work on leukemia and cardiovascular diseases amongst atomic bomb survivors in Hiroshima and clinical trials for various therapeutic areas at Roche in Shanghai. Her experience working on drug development for Alzheimer’s disease has illuminated the challenging nature of this field. She is very excited to join this team and conduct research to benefit AD patients in the future. She is married and has two adult children. To show them that we all need to be brave and take challenges, one of the most memorable and fun moments is that she sky dived with her sons when they traveled to Australia. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, hand crafting, and doing yoga.
