Biostatistics creates and
applies methods for quantitative research in the health sciences. Our faculty conduct research across the spectrum of
statistical science from foundations of inference to the discovery of new
methodology to health applications. Our designs and analytic methods
enable health scientists and professionals in academia, government,
pharmaceutical companies, medical research organizations and elsewhere to
efficiently acquire knowledge and draw valid conclusions from their
ever-expanding sources of information.
The Department of
Biostatistics offers doctoral (PhD) and master of science (ScM) degrees as well as a master of health science
(MHS) in biostatistics for students earning a PhD in another department
of the School. Our graduates have leadership careers as researchers in
departments, government, and industry.
