Division Overview

Members of the Division of Biostatistics collaborate with investigators throughout the medical center in the conduct of research projects, and they pursue their own research on statistical methodology. Their involvement includes study design, data monitoring, and data analysis. Anyone on the faculty can engage a biostatistician to collaborate on preparing an application for a grant. The Division also provides a consulting service through which any faculty member can receive one hour of free consultation. The consulting service also provides the opportunity for data analysis on a fee-for-service basis. The Division sponsors a monthly journal club for biostatisticians and epidemiologists throughout the institution. Faculty in the Division are course directors for the various courses in biostatistics that are part of the core curriculum in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and core curriculum in the Master of Public Health program.
