Research

The Biostatistics Department is involved in a wide variety of research efforts throughout the university, including at the School of Public Health and the School of Medicine. Our mission is to develop new statistical methodology to address important questions in the biological and health sciences. We bring these innovations into practice through active collaboration with applied researchers at Yale and beyond.
