General Information

Biostatistics provides the essential methodological and quantitative underpinning necessary for much of public health and medical research. Appropriate study design, data collection and analysis are all needed in order to quantify the effect of risk factors and health interventions on individuals or populations. Areas of concentration in the department are the development and application of methods in statistical genetics and bioinformatics, statistical epidemiology, statistical issues in clinical research including clinical trials, and the geographic information systems.
