Biostatistics & Informatics

Biostatistics provides the essential analytical methods necessary for public health and medical research. Biostatisticians formulate scientific questions, plan and evaluate study designs, collect and interpret data, and managed procedures. Through a combination of statistics, probability, mathematics and computing skills, biostatisticians are a necessary component to all biomedical research. They ensure that research is on a solid statistical footing while improving health and reducing illness.

From new technologies and experiments to study designs, there are many new advances in biomedical research everyday. Datasets are exploding in size. Biostatisticians are needed to develop statistical methods for clinical trials, observational studies, longitudinal studies and genomics.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
