What we do

From new technologies to new study designs, there are advances in biomedical research every day. Datasets are exploding in size and Biostatisticians are needed to formulate scientific questions, plan and evaluate study designs, and collect and interpret data. Biostatisticians develop statistical methods for clinical trials, observational studies, longitudinal studies, and genomics.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ In Biostatistics and Informatics, there is a focus on the tools that allow you to analyze data for answers. In this field, you’re not limited to just one research area — you have the tools to constantly evolve and study current and emerging fields every day.

What you can learn

A degree in Biostatistics and Informatics prepares you to enter the growing field of data science and make well-supported inferences from data. When you leave one of the Biostatistics and Informatics programs, you’ll be ready to lend analytical support to any number of data supported questions. Graduates of the programs work with research groups, consulting firms, public health departments, foundations, universities and more.
