Department of Global Biostatistics and Data Science


Front Door


Biostatistics is an area of applied statistical science that deals with designing health related research studies, analyzing data from such studies, and effectively reporting and communicating results to health researchers and the general public.

The teaching and research programs prepare the student to be part of an interdisciplinary team for conducting medical and public health research. Students learn to extract and report data from existing databases, to create new databases as appropriate, and to analyze these data.  Advanced level students learn to address issues in the development and appropriate use of statistical methods. 






Mission Statement
