Dr. Ebony Boyce Carter is an associate professor at Washington University School of Medicine and practices maternal fetal medicine in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Her research focuses on 1) Evidence-based methods to optimize management of medical complications in pregnancy, and 2) Translating knowledge of adverse pregnancy outcomes into risk-reduction strategies for future cardiovascular disease. She uses community-based participatory research methods to study innovative health care delivery strategies for disadvantaged women. She is conducting a randomized trial to determine whether women with diabetes who participate in group prenatal care have improved pregnancy outcomes compared to those who receive individual prenatal care.

Dr. Olsen’s background is in clinical microbiology, epidemiology and biostatistics. Her primary appointment is in the Division of Infectious Diseases. Dr. Olsen’s primary interests include the epidemiology of hospital-acquired infections, particularly surgical site infections after breast cancer and spine surgery. More recently, she has become interested in using large administrative and claims datasets to study infectious and noninfectious complications of surgical procedures. Dr. Olsen is also working to develop algorithms for researchers using these data to study complications after events (such as surgical procedures).

- Phone: (314) 362-5952
Dr. Wang has longstanding clinical and research interests in screening for gastrointestinal cancer. As a practicing gastroenterologist, she has personally performed more than 1,000 colonoscopies and is intimately familiar with the complex process faced by patients referred for colorectal cancer screening. She is currently involved in research on early detection of esophageal cancer as well as colorectal cancer screening through the Siteman Cancer Center’s Program for the Elimination of Cancer Disparities.
Assistant Professor, Orthopaedic Surgery and Department of Surgery, Division of Public Health Sciences
Dr. Yanik joined the Washington University faculty in September 2016. Given her background in public health, Dr. Yanik has particular interest in research identifying opportunities for prevention of musculoskeletal disease. Her current research focuses on understanding risk factors for the development of rotator cuff disease, including the contributions of genetic and occupational risk. She also collaborates broadly across the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery to support clinical research efforts by providing expertise on study design, measurement, and statistical analyses.
