DIVISION OF BIOSTATISTICS & BIOINFORMATICS

IN THE HERBERT WERTHEIM SCHOOL OF PUBLIC HEALTH AND HUMAN LONGEVITY SCIENCE

WHAT WE DO

We have expertise in design and analysis of clinical trials, behavioral interventions, cohort studies, and biomarker studies, including such areas as longitudinal models, “big data” and high dimensional analyses, image analysis, and survey statistics

Meet Our People

 Our goal is to pursue excellence in the following areas: 

  • Methodological research in biostatistics and bioinformatics, in particular methods responsive to new quantitative and scientific problems arising from advances in medicine, biology and health care systems

  • Collaborative clinical, biological, and translational research

  • Education in contemporary statistical theory and applications

  • Service to the university and local community
