What's in your data?    Inspiration   

"Biostatistics provides the tools to help rigorously evaluate and digest research findings from both "simple" and "complex" research projects in order to help others disseminate their information and make novel findings that can contribute to the improvement of public health and global society."

"A statistician/data scientist can help identify, evaluate, and execute the most appropriate methods to help efficiently answer your research question so that you can spend more time on your research and less time worrying about how to implement, explain, and disseminate your results."
