Annette L. Adams, PhD, MPH
Research Scientist I
Division of Epidemiologic Research
Dr. Annette Adams is an injury epidemiologist and a research scientist in the Department of Research & Evaluation. Much of her work to date has focused on injuries in older adults, pharmacologic influences on bone health, the effects of long-term use of bisphosphonates on fracture risk and adverse events, risk factors for falls and fractures, and outcomes of fractures.
Dr. Adams has led multiple projects of various sizes. She was the principal investigator for a large, multisite project funded by the Food and Drug Administration on proton-pump inhibitors and hip fracture risk; the PI for an industry-funded study on estimation of short-term fracture risk; and site PI and PI for studies on atypical femur fractures funded by both industry and the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Adams uses large, automated data sources and electronic health records for observational research purposes. She has amassed considerable experience and expertise in the management and analysis of these complex data.
