Center for Biostatistics
The Mount Sinai Center for Biostatistics promotes translational and clinical research at the Mount Sinai Health System by offering state-of-the-art statistical expertise in a wide variety of areas including clinical trials, biomarker discovery and validation, risk assessment, Bayesian methods, genetics and others; and by developing novel methodological approaches. The Center’s internationally recognized faculty are committed to developing novel methodological approaches, and enhancing education through formal medical school and graduate school curricula, and mentoring of post‐doctoral fellows and junior faculty.
The Center, located within the Department of Health Evidence and Policy, collaborates closely with clinical colleagues to foster the growth research agendas. In addition to these thematic long‐term collaborations, the Center’s faculty provide free statistical consultations through the Biostatistics and Epidemiology and Research Design (BERD) program, which is supported by Mount Sinai’s Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA). In addition, the Center for Biostatistics partners with the Institute for Translational Epidemiology to offer statistical expertise in epidemiological study design, conduct, analysis, interpretation, and reporting of results to its members and affiliates.
