Dr. Marnie LaNoue is a quantitative psychologist with primary training in statistical methods for longitudinal analysis and measurement science. In the years since receiving her PhD from The University of New Mexico, she has worked to expand her knowledge base in the methods of doing research and has a current focus and expertise in patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) and rigorous mixed-methods evaluation research approaches (such as dissemination and implementation science).

Dr. LaNoue's current research focuses on the development and testing of methods for engaging patients and stakeholders in the research process. She also investigates novel patient-centered care delivery systems and the measurement of patient perceptions of health care. She conducts measurement science research. Her current projects include measurement conceptualization of Uncertainty during Acute Care Encounters (funded by the Society for Emergency Medicine) and conceptualization and measurement of healthcare provider burnout (in collaboration with the Gold Foundation for Humanism in Medicine). Finally, Dr. LaNoue is interested in the measurement of lifetime adverse events as predictors of adult health outcomes, with a focus on developing alternative measurement models which include patient-reported impact of events for these relationships and/or other potential moderators and mediators of the relationship between adversity and health outcomes. 

Dr. LaNoue has served as the lead evaluation scientist on grants from the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), as well as serving as Principal Investigator on grants from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) and the Gold Foundation for Humanism in Medicine.
