Dr. Neumayer is Professor and Chair in the Department of Surgery at the University of Arizona College of Medicine in Tucson. She has focused her scholarly activity in four main themes: surgical education, clinical trials, quality and outcomes, and mentoring/faculty development.
Dr. Neumayer's master's degree in clinical research design and statistical analysis has laid a strong foundation for not only designing and conducting prospective trials, but also has fostered a deeper understanding of statistical analyses and other methodologies such as survey design and health-related quality-of-life measurements. Combining the skills and knowledge gained from her master's program, she successfully has led investigations in hernia repair techniques, breast cancer treatment, surgical quality and outcomes, as well as surgical education techniques. Dr. Neumayer's work has also involved mentoring others in these and other pursuits. More recently she has focused her energy in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer via innovative technology and clinical trials.
