Dr Olorunsola (Shola)  Agbaje is a Senior Medical Statistician at the University of Oxford Diabetes Trials Unit (DTU). He joined the DTU in March 2013 where he serves as the statistical lead in the Translational Research Group (TRG) and  the Oxford statistical lead for the MASTERMIND study.

Prior to joining the DTU, he was a Senior Medical Statistician in the  Department of Research Oncology at Guy’s Hospital, London. At Guy’s, he provided statistical expertise and leadership for various research teams, with a particular focus on clinical trials for the evaluation of surgical devices for breast cancer surgeries and modelling prediction of breast cancer survival using clinical, biochemical and gene expression data.

Shola was a member of the Metabolic Modelling Group at the University of Cambridge. During this time, he worked on a number of glucose control projects, CLINICIL for monitoring blood glucose for critically ill patients, artificial pancreas for the treatment of subjects with type I diabetes and a number of advanced statistical models for estimating insulin sensitivity and glucose effectiveness in type II diabetes.

Research interests have focused mainly on advanced statistical modelling techniques and their medical applications, with particular interests in design and analysis of clinical experiments, statistical models for intensive longitudinal data and event history analysis.
